We have been doing a lot of "sport" out in the garden, developing gross motor skills.  The children have been learning to balance and correct themselves on our equipment in the garden.  They have been learning how to walk up the balancing beam, and then to bend their knees to jump off at the top.  The scramble net has been a great challenge, learning to climb and balance at the same time as moving one hand and on foot upwards to reach the top.  

The children have also been learning to take turns and to line up while doing the stepping stones, much harder to master than you think.  Hoola-hoops have been a source of much laughter, they have been learning their colours as well as trying to catch the hoops when rolled down the hill, a "hand-eye" co-ordination skill that's fun to learn. 

 A new skill some of the children are learning is to kick a ball to another person and to stop the ball when kicked back to them.  The coloured hoop tunnel has been great fun too; while the weather has been dry and sunny, they have all followed each other crawling through them.
