In PE the children have been developing their independence, understanding of the need for safety when tackling new challenges, and considering and managing some risks. They have explored traveling with confidence and skill around, under, over and through balancing and climbing equipment in the hall.

Funky Fingers a series of fun activities for children to build up their upper body strength (gross motor skills) and finger/hand strength and control (fine motor skills). There are a wealth of activities that you can do with your child to improve these skills and get them ready to write. I can recommend visiting the website ‘Therapy Street for Kids’ which has a lot of information on the different skills to develop as well as lots of great ideas.
