Physical Development

There will be two periods of P.E. for each age group. Two will be games and the other for swimming and splashing. During games, they will develop body awareness and control and learn to follow instructions and take turns. On swimming days, we will encourage children to dress and undress themselves as much as possible as this helps them to become independent and to look after their own belongings (Montessori – Practical Life Skills).

There will be plenty of classroom activities which will require the children to improve on their fine motor skills i.e. cutting along straight lines, dotted lines, curves and zigzag lines. As well, there will be plenty of exercises in writing in order to gain excellent pencil control.
