Sand and Sticks

This week we have been developing our muscles ready for writing. We have been using sand,  rhythm sticks and  play dough to help strength our finger, hand, wrist and arm muscles. Take a look at our photographs to see how we used our sand trays to create patterns and letter shapes. With rhythm sticks we made large movements in the air and on the ground and with play dough we rolled, patted, squashed and squeezed with small hand movements. 

At the end of the morning everyone was exhausted!!!
