Finger Gym

For this mornings activity we enhanced  our water play with plastic bottles, lids, sponges and teaspoons. Playing with water helps children to express their feelings and generally hold the child's concentration. Learning to screw and unscrew kids also gives the children a sense of achievement whilst working their fingers and hands to build up their strength when getting ready to write. The activity challenges hand eye coordination, rotational skills whilst learning new words. 
You can support your child st home by adding bottles and tea spoons to the bath at bath time.

An introduction to the world, religion and life. The children are able to look at maps in a meaningful way, and how other communities live and play.
