Dough Disco

To encourage fine motor skills we participate in a Dough Disco session. This helps to strengthen the finger muscles and improve handwriting and pencil control. We do this to music which the children really enjoy.

Healthy Snack

Everyday the children enjoy a healthy snack which consists of milk or water, apples, bananas, oranges, pears, carrots, tomatoes and raisins.

Wake and Shake

Every day the children have a 'Wake and Shake' session. This improves gross motor skills which then supports fine motor skills and helps to develop the children's handwriting.
