This week we have been developing our Gross Motor skills by playing with the parachute and chalking on the playground. We are also going to be flying paper aeroplanes around the hall and flicking balls of paper. These activities will help us to develop the strength in the muscles in our hands ready to start writing.
During Child Initiated Learning, we developed our fine motor skills by cutting up fruit for a class fruit salad which we ate at snack time.
Here are some pictures.
We have welcomed our lovely new Reception class this week who have already been very busy! Here are some photos of our first day in our new class.
