It is not to be assumed that every child develops gross motor skills on schedule or according to some immutable formula.  In the rush to master alphabets and number sets schools often assume the essential gross motor skills that embody rhythm, left-right coordination, and other basic coordinates.
Fine motor skills are easily focused upon as they produce results.  But without the backup of the larger strength and freedom, they are likely to atrophy, to be unsatisfying.
As for sensation, to that there is no end.  But to what are our kids becoming sensitive?  To screens.  Anything else?
