This term our Red groups program has been closely focused on the children’s gross motor skills. Many of our children are demonstrating a real interest and skills in more difficult physical equipment such as the roman rings, rope ladder, monkey bars and firemen’s pole. On Monday 25th May 2015 we were lucky enough to go to a session at the Glitz Gymnastics Academy in Lilydale.

The children has a wonderful time balancing on the beams, tumbling on mats, bouncing on the trampolines and jumping castle, swinging on the rings and from the high bars and of course the favourite was being able to jump into the big foam pit!!! Back at kinder we continue to promote physcial coordination and skill by doing PMP in the mornings and get opportunities to build upper body strength doing wheelbarrows with a friend and by walking up the wall into a handstand.
