F1 Physical Development
Throwing and Catching
This term the children have been practising the skill of throwing and catching a ball.
In the summer term, we planted some seed potatoes. This term, we worked together to harvest them. Here, we are digging them out ready to use in our cooking activity.
Developing and strengthening children’s fine motor skills plays an important part a child’s early years. Strong fine motor skills enable children to develop their pencil grip which, in turn, will help them to develop their writing skills. A way of strengthening a child’s fine motor skills is ‘Dough Disco’. In the Nursery, we carry out ‘Dough Disco’ on a daily basis. The enclosed information booklet gives information of how you can carry out ‘Dough Disco’ with your child at home.
Cooking Potato Salad
We practised our cutting and tearing skills to make potato salad.
