Write dance

Writedance

We have been practising our pencil grip and strengthening our core muscles using WriteDance at school in readiness for writing. We used big movements to draw circles and eights in the air with rainbow scarves, matching them to the music, before drawing them down on paper.

If you would like to help at home you could strengthen hand muscles by squeezing sponges at bath time, watering the garden with spray bottles or screwing up old newspaper in to tiny balls – don’t forget to use both hands!

All of our hand control activities help to develop a good pencil grip.

 

Pablo Picasso!

This week, we had a visitor in Cygnet class...

Pablo Picasso came to visit us and told us all about his pictures of faces with eyes and mouths in the wrong places! He also explained that he loves to use different colours and he really likes blue and white stripes too! 

We used scissors and glue to cut up photographs of our own faces to make pictures just like Pablo Picasso.

Look at how funny we look!
