Working Together To Be The Best We Can Be

Physical Development

Challenge 1- Mark-Making Practice.

In the story, the ladybird made a pattern as she flew from one animal to the next to tell them her plan.

Can you practise making some wavy or curly patterns like this?

You could use a pencil, crayon or felt-tip pen on some paper, some paint and a brush, some chalks on the ground outside, your finger in a tray of salt or sugar, a stick in the mud...

Here are some other patterns you could try too... remember to always work from left to right...



Challenge 2- Fine Motor Skills.

Can you find an ice cube tray in your kitchen?

Now find some small objects that will fit in the holes e.g.buttons, stones, pieces of pasta, pieces of cereal, small toys etc.. 

Can you place the objects into the holes in the ice cube tray?

Practise using your thumb and index finger (pincer grip) - you could try to pick up the objects with a teaspoon, or tongs, or a clothes peg, or tweezers or inventive!!



Challenge 3- Gross Motor Movements...Exercise!!

It is really important that you all get as much exercise as possible to help you to grow, and to help you to do your best thinking!!

We have already given you lots of ideas for fun physical activities, but here are a few reminders...!

go for a walk with your grown-ups- what can you see along the way?

Practise riding your bikes and scooters...
