Funky Fingers … this is our fine manipulation activities which include completing lots of different challenges that keep our hands super busy. The challenges are designed to build up the strength and dexterity in our hands, which are the foundations needed for writing. We have a carousel of activities that we complete, with different levels of challenge. We link this to their current learning to help embed and consolidate skills. For instance we have carefully tied loom bands onto lollipop sticks, completing addition calculations to find out how many to put on. We have also been using pegging letter pegs onto paper to make some of our tricky words.
Washing our hands is important, more so now than ever before. We have been busy designing our own washing hands posters... don’t they look great?
