Fine and Gross motor skills at home

Miss Smythe ran a successful workshop in February about how to help reception pupils develop fine and gross motor skills. Thank you to everyone who attended. Further events will be organised throughout the year.

Fine motor skills are involve the use of the smaller muscles in the hand, where as gross motor skills are those which require whole body movements. Both sets of skills are essential in supporting a child's development and in learning to write and read. If anyone would like further support please don't hesitate in coming into school.
