Developing the skills required for writing
Recent research has demonstrated a clear connection between the development of fine motor skills in early life and later success in maths, science and reading.
Fine motor fun is a preschool class developed with our team of Early Years Specialists, including an Occupational Therapist. The programme focuses on the development of early fine motor skills, targeting pre handwriting skills and self care tasks such as using buttons, zips and laces. In each group there are songs with accompanying instruments such as castanets to develop fine motor control, weekly finger plays, fine motor gym and carefully selected fine motor craft activities.
