This mornings task is all about the children's fine motor skills, we focus on fine motor skills as it helps the children's finger and hands muscles to develop and in turn this helps them with their pencil grip and then letter formation and hand writing. I have attached the different stages of pencil grips for the children for you to look at and to see where your child is, at this moment in the school year we expect all of the children to working within one of the tripod grip areas.
As everybody will have different resources at home we are not going to set a direct task but instead provide ideas for you to do at home, this could be playdough, scissors or using tweezers. The most important thing is that the children are using their finger and hand muscles
I cannot wait to see what you have all be up too but now it is time for lunch time, so take a break and eat something delicious before this afternoons learning!
