WE all know that academic learning alone does not provide a well-rounded education for a child, which is why the learning of essential physical skills are of vital importance too.

Weekly playball lessons form an important part of learning at Little Oaks Kindergarten (and they’re loads of fun too) where the children learn to develop and enhance fundamental skills such as locomotor skills (running, walking, crawling, skipping, hopping), manipulation skills (throwing, kicking, rolling, hitting) and stability skills (such as beam-walking, one-legged stances and inverted positions).

The skills cannot be learnt only in isolation, but skill sequencing must be taught as well, during which individual skills are combined to form specific skill sequences.
Participating in sporting activities is also essential for the learning of important­ social skills, such as teamwork, tolerance and patience, good sportsmanship, overcoming failure, self-acceptance, goal setting, discipline and more.

Our Little Oaks would like to say a big thank you to Theresa Hohls for travelling to school every week to teach them all these essential skills.
