This week the preps began a perceptual motor program (PMP) which will run every Friday from 9:00am - 10:00am.
PMP aims to develop children's perceptions and understanding of spacial awareness in which the body moves through. It aims to develop fine and gross motor skills and promotes hand-eye coordination, concentration and attention, locomotion, and confidence to 'have a go.'
Students are involved in activities such as balancing, eye tracking, crawling through, jumping over, hopping, climbing, throwing and catching, strength and body control, skipping and many more.
We are always looking for parent helpers to assist with these sessions, so if you can help out please speak to Mr. Gibbons or your child's prep teacher.
Below are some photos from our first PMP session, the students all had a fantastic time!
