Get Moving: A Focus on Physical Development – Leicestershire

Course description

As one of the prime areas of the learning in the EYFS, Physical Development is recognised as a crucial element in nurturing and supporting young learners to thrive. Children use movement as a means to express themselves, collaborate and explore the world around them. But in “Bold Beginnings”,  Ofsted reported a lack of movement in many settings. In this practical twilight we will explore in depth how we plan for key experiences that will get children moving and inspire learning through physical action!
