Developing skills in Nursery this week!
Monday 22nd June | 1 comment
This week we are developing our fine motor skills which help to support us with our writing and in particularly controlling our pencils. Every week we practise ‘Disco Dough’ which builds our arm strength.
We are using white paint and PVA solution to draw on. The solution is spread over a small area and the children can then make marks, write letters or numbers this is then transferred on to a black piece of card. We are using tweezers to move beads on to a pattern, put water beads on suction pads and to see how many beads we can move in 1 minute!! The final tricky task is to use a pipette filled with water and gently fill the holes at the top of a Duplo brick! A lot of fine motor skills need good hand-eye co-ordination, arm strength and concentration.

Please don’t forget our trip is THIS Friday (26th June). You will need to bring a packed lunch and suitable clothing. The current forecast is a high of 21oC and rain. So please make sure you have rain coats and wellington boots. There is plenty for us to do both inside and outside. Fingers crossed the weather may improve so be prepared in case the sun does come out!!! The last information packs should be out at the end of today, so if you haven’t yet received one then please let me know. We will open the doors to Nursery as normal and aim to be on the bus and minibus by 9.30am.
