Gross motor activities

Gross motor activities are an essential part of every child’s life and at Amazing K it forms a very important part of our “every-day” curriculum.  Gross motor skills involve movement/s that uses the large muscles of the body. As a school we use our outside play times and after care times to focus on Gross Motor Development Skills.  We incorporate a wide variety of activities such as:  jumping, skipping, running, throwing, catching, balance, midline crossing and hand-eye co-ordination activities.  We also incorporate  Bilateral co-ordination which includes activities that helps the child use both sides of the body in a coordinated way.
