How does Physical Development help with Children’s Education

Physical development is a core fundamental in a child’s educational journey. It helps them learn about themselves and keeping active and healthy. Children do this in a range of ways including:

  1. Evolving spacial awareness when moving
  2. Developing co-ordination of small and large movements
  3. Learning to use tools and equipment effectively
  4. Communicating when they do or don’t need help
  5. Learning how to show their feelings
  6. Understanding that some behaviour is unacceptable
  7. Playing co-operatively and forming positive relationships
