This week has seen a very exciting new learning programme for RSS, called ‘Moving Smart’ (P.M.P) beginning across the Papatuanuku team (Junior) and some Ranginui team classes. ‘Moving Smart’ has a Floor session, Equipment session and Language follow up sessions. The Floor sessions and Language follow up sessions can be part of th e ‘in class’ programme and the equipment sessions will be in the hall. ‘Moving Smart’ looks at further developing our learners in two of our seven senses – the vestibular and proprioceptive senses (balance, co-ordination and where their body is in relation to their environment).
“By understanding the “learning nexus” between a young child’s brain and body, PMP works to develop children’s physical motor skills that provide the foundations necessary for success in their early school years – while equipping educators with a new set of diagnostic tools and remediation techniques to help children make the leap to a lifetime of learning.” (Moving Smart).
I would like to invite anyone who is interested in seeing the equipment, learning about this progressive programme and seeing some of this in acton to come along next Friday, 21st October at 1:45 in the art space. Looking forward to seeing you there. Nga mihi, Mel
