We have been practising our fine motor movements to help us to hold a pencil. We have been using white boards, frozen paint and ice, and peg boards. We also went on the Timber Trail for a treat in the sunshine and to practice our gross motor skills.
This week we have been talking about dinosaurs and discovered a dinosaur footprint! We did some investigating and we think it belongs to a pterodactyl. We thought of some sounds that the pterodactyl might have made and used our excellent cutting skills to make dinosaur masks to help us when using our imagination.
