Within the pre-school room this afternoon, Claire's key group took part in a fantastic activity which supports the children's fine motor skills.
Claire took part in this activity herself in partnership with teachers from a local school. The children were encouraged to crumple up a piece of newspaper only using one hand - this was fun too as the children made lots of weird and wonderful noises as they were completing this task. Claire then encouraged the children to use their other hand to see if they could crumple the piece up more.
The children then had the opportunity to through the ball into a box, supporting their ongoing development in hand and eye coordination.
