This last week at Head Start we have been looking at Gross Motor Skills. There has been lots of running chasing balls, crawling through tunnels, jumping and kicking and balloons and bubbles.
Gross motor skills require the use of a child's large muscle groups. With practice these movements become more refined and are extended to more complex tasks. Gross motor skills are also an important aspect of fine motor skills.
We are looking forward to another exciting week at our Head Start Headquarters. If you have contacted us and have not heard back then please give Di a call at our office 03 4879698 as there have been a few "lost is space things happening". Give us a call if you would like to pop in and see what we do at Head Start as we are happy for you to do this.
Have a good week and I look forward to sharing some ideas on Visual Discrimination with you at our Head Start Headquarters this week.
From the Head Start Team
