Physical development

Today we made spinning helicopters in fine motor Friday. They were tricky to make involving cutting, folding and putting a paper clip on but they loved seeing them spin as they dropped them! We also had a range of other activities such as play dough number forming, peg boards and matchstick patterns.

Busy fingers in our fine motor Friday!

We are enjoying our new adventure playground!

Great perseverance shown in our fine motor challenges!

We used the equipment in gymnastics to balance, jump and move in different ways.

Our fine motor activities included shape tiles this week to practise naming their 2D shapes.

Using the resources outside to build and develop gross motor skills. Great cooperation and communication too.

Fine motor Friday today continued to reinforce our Poppy Day learning.

Plenty of opportunity for fine motor practise in class this week including dough disco groups!

We took the opportunity, when we had no furniture in our room, to do some large scale drawing. Great creativity and concentration!

In our fine motor Friday today, we were threading, colouring and cutting!

Today we had lots of fun strengthening our fingers in our fine motor activities. First we did dough disco and then moved onto tap tap boards, ‘Spokey dokeys’ and colouring.

Enjoying our dance session in the hall. We listened carefully to the instructions and loved moving our bodies in different ways!
