We put a lot of emphasis on sports games at Dawn and Dusk. It helps children develop many physical and physiological qualities. It is also very important to be able to play as a team. We believe that when children play sports, they acquire new skills that will help them in the future.
This month in the Oak Tree group, we held many sports games, such as basketball, football, soccer, and much more. We encourage children to find their confidence and have the opportunity to play with other players in a team and learn to respect the opinions of others. It's an amazing feeling to see the smiles on their faces.
We mostly played sports in the morning before school. Being active in the morning gives you a boost of energy for the whole day, and the children go to school in a great mood. We also try to diversify our games and are always looking for something new and interesting. For example, children were very fond of playing with hoops, and they also enjoyed playing badminton so we will continue to build on those skills.
We know that all children are unique and will develop their skills at their own pace. We really try and encourage the children to try new games, practice new skills and have fun while they engage in different types of sports. Children can gain so much from their experience playing sports whether it be how to kick a ball, how to play as part of a team, or maybe even what to work on for next time they play!
