  • Developing our mark making skills:

  • Dough Disco

    Using play dough is a great way to develop children’s fine motor skills. It strengthens the muscles in their hands and fingers, preparing them to mark make. Take a look at this video, to see how we practise dough disco in Pre-Nursery:

  • Squiggle while you wiggle 

    We also like to join in with ‘Squiggle while you wiggle,’ it is lots of fun for the children to join in dancing and developing their early mark making skills, using gross motor skills. Using big movements like Shonette and the children do in the video helps to strengthen the muscles in the whole body. Good gross motor skills have a positive impact on school readiness skills such as reading, writing and sitting posture. regular physical activity can help your child achieve long-lasting good health. so let’s get moving! Think big, big, big!!!!
