The children at Chatham Nursery School benefit from weekly PE sessions held at St Hugh’s school and are led by Early Years Sports specialist Martin Lancaster.
The children develop skills such as co-ordination ,control and balance . They are able to practice and refine these skills when engaged in free play in the nurserys outdoor environment.
Most of all the children gain pleasure from being physically active and Martins sessions are always full of fun!
Evidence suggests that being physically active in the early years can:
- support brain development
- help develop social skills and emotional wellbeing
- enhance bone health and muscular development
- give children the skills and confidence they need to continue and active lifestyle into childhood and beyond.
