Developing Balancing Skills in Gym

The Afternoon Group had a very busy gym lesson this week!  We are focussing on balancing skills in preparation for our balance bike training which will be starting soon.

After a ‘Funky Monkey’ warm up, we had a go at three different kinds of activities to develop our awareness of balance: balancing beanbags on heads, balancing on a bench and balancing on stepping stones. As always, we finished up with one of our ‘Relax Kids’ relaxation stories.

Please make sure your child has a pair of clean, indoor shoes (named!) at nursery for our gym lessons.  These must not be shoes that have been worn on the way to nursery.  If you could please change your child into their gym shoes on arrival at nursery on a Thursday afternoon, this will save us valuable time at the gym hall.
