Reception Get Squiggling!

Reception have been working on some interesting ways of developing their fine-motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination to support their handwriting development. The children have been ‘Squiggling!” 

Each child takes two ‘Squiggle Squares’ of fabric (one in each hand) and moves to music, creating the lines and shapes that are represented in our alphabet.  These waving movements also support the development of fine-motor control. 

At the moment, co-ordinating their bodies in this way can be quite challenging for some children!  The movements are then translated onto long strips of paper using crayons (again one in each hand) and are producing some lovely results.

In our cookery lessons we have been having great fun making biscuits. We have used tools to chop apples, and been working with dough, this is a great way to strengthen muscles in the children’s hands, which are often the last to develop, and so again supports the children’s handwriting development.

It is fantastic to see the children having so much fun with these techniques which will work towards them achieving the goal of beautiful legible handwriting.
