Obstacle Courses In The Koala Class
The Koala class are becoming experts at navigating the wonderful gym equipment we have to use at our school.
Obstacle courses offer children the opportunity to use their whole bodies to navigate space. This develops their brains vestibular system which anchors them in space and time and it builds their gross motor skills and large muscle co-ordination. These skills are essential to being able to master the more complicated fine motor skills (like writing) at a later date.
It is also tremendous fun!
