Soft Start Activity

Each morning, P1/2 start with a gentle activity to settle us in.  Sometimes we focus on general motor skills, sometimes it’s a task to develop writing skills and sometimes activities that promote listening and attention.  Today, we worked on fine motor skills to decorate our names by dabbing paint with cotton buds.  We talked about our “Doing Hand”, “Helping Hand” and gave our “Sleeping Fingers” a soft pillow to hold on to!  This aims to encourage a good pencil grip.

Cutting Skills – Fine Motor Skills

This week, everybody has worked on their cutting skills.  Our hard work has been made into beautiful pictures that will be displayed outside our class.  Scissor cutting takes a surprising amount of skill, patience and perseverance!
