Early Years Foundation Stage

Physical development

Our programme supports children to develop:

  • increasing control over the large movements that they can make with their arms, legs and bodies, so that they can run, jump, hop, skip, roll, climb, balance and lift;
  • increasing control over the small movements they can make with their arms, wrists and hands, so that they can pick up and use objects, tools and materials; and
  • their understanding about the importance of, and how to look after, their bodies.
