We are asking parents to focus on teaching children a few key skills to help them become independent. Please try the following at home with your child:
- Putting my coat on and doing my zip up.
- Hold a pencil correctly (3 fingers pinching the bottom) to make some marks or write letters in my name.
- Holding and using scissors correctly to cut paper (thumb on the top, index finger on the bottom)
- Counting small groups of objects using some correct number names.
The children have really enjoyed disco dough! We have practised a number of skills such as rolling, moulding, sculpting, pinching and poking the play dough. We do disco dough every day in Nursery to music. The idea behind disco dough is to strengthen the fingers and develop fine motor skills making the children more ready to write.
We break up Friday 20th October for one week. The children are back in school Monday 30th October.
We hope you all have a lovely restful week. If you go on any nice Autumn walks please collect leaves, conkers and fir cones and send them into Nursery ready for our topics.
