Physical Development

You are working so hard to develop those fine motor skills this week. I have seen some of you using cotton buds to paint your names, lots of fantastic scissor skills, great concentration when placing objects onto zig zag and wavy lines and many of you taking on the spaghetti challenge and being so careful to ensure that your spaghetti doesn't snap! You are all stars!


Pick a different activity from yesterday and keep working on those fine motor skills today. Using children’s plastic tweezers, pegs or kitchen tongs to pick things up, scissors to cut out shapes or along lines, cotton buds for painting dots over your name or words, placing counters/sweets/raisins onto wavy/squiggly/straight lines, threading with spaghetti, pipe cleaners or string, screwing and unscrewing nuts and bolts, there are lots of ways to strengthen your hands and fingers at home.
