Gross and Fine motor skills at Hammersmith
Motor skills are key to everything we do in life. At willows, we work on our gross and fine motor skills daily. The children in the baby room have been practising standing, walking, and crawling through fun games and activities which help them develop their gross motor skills.
At a later stage, they can start interacting with their friends and you can see them dancing, working on both Personal, Social and Emotional Development and gross motor skills. For their fine motor skills, they practice threading as it helps them focus on details and pass the thread through holes. In the toddler and preschool room, the children attempt more complicated movements and combinations. They have a lot of fun playing games that include running. jumping, skipping, hopping, and climbing. The children have also been working on their throwing, catching, balancing, kicking & aiming skills through adult-led activities that are different from the usual and free outdoor play.
