It's harder than it looks !

We are very excited to be trying out our new rope swing today. Thank you to JC Gardens for supplying our button rope swing for us. We love it !  At first it was hard to get on, get our balance and put our weight in the right place.  Then we had to work out how to push ourselves off to move as fast as we wanted.  Throughout our first day on our rope swing we have all grown in confidence with it. The teachers have had a go too and all agree it takes a bit of practice.  We look forward to seeing your confidence grow with it...all of us....  teachers and children !

Why is swinging so important for young children to do ? When we swing the liquid in our ears moves and it helps our body coordinate our eye and head movements.  These are important experiences which help children develop the body skills to read, hear, speak, touch, balance, and move. 

So, we love our rope swing as not only is it great fun but it is developing our vestibular system too !
