This term we have been developing our Fine Motor skills through hands on activities. Fine Motor skills allow us to complete everyday tasks like tying our laces and hanging up washing. These skills are essential for writing and being able to control a pencil and form correct pencil grip.
Take a look at some of the writing and fine motor activities we have been learning!
The Pre Primary children have been immersed in our Fairytale unit this term.
We were inspired to build a castle in our shared role play area. The children collected lots of boxes from home and then had to plan, experiment and problem solve how to use the boxes to build a stable wall for our castle.
We needed lots of tape to make a stable wall structure
This is fun!
Unfortunately the rain and stormy weather one weekend proved that our structure was not stable enough to brave the elements!
Mr Searle came to our rescue, donating some large and strong boxes from his workplace.
We cut windows and painted bricks on our castle walls
We have made thrones for our King and Queen and have costumes for role play and dress ups in the Pre Primary Castle. Keep your eyes open and you may catch a glimpse of knights, wizards, witches, princes, princesses and fairies!
