Top 5 EYFS Nursery Must Haves for the Physical Development Curriculum

 Physical development is one of the key areas of the EYFS and is incredibly important. It is used to develop movement, fine motor skills, handling objects and understanding their own bodies and health. Children can do this in a range of ways including but not limited to special awareness when moving, co-ordination with both small and large movements, how to effectively use tools and equipment, saying when they do or don't need help, how show their feelings, learn that some behaviour is unacceptable and its consequences, how to play co-operatively and form positive relationships with adults and children.*
