Home link with parents/ Carers
At Woodcroft pre school we like to keep in contact with our families and be able to offer them support where ever possible. We are able to send pictures, information/ updates fun activities, useful ideas for your child's learning and be able to communicate any needs for you child to us and to respond back to you. This has been a really useful tool to create a strong link between families.
Help your child to thread the beads onto the string to improve your childs fine motors skills. Threading helps to strengthen the small muscles in your child's hands, this helps to prepare them for writing and to be able to hold onto their writing tools.
Explore and talk about the different shapes, colours and sizes of the beads together.
This is an adult led activity, be careful they dont put the beads into their mouths. Once the child has threaded the beads onto the string , bring them into pre-school to show us their amazing work!
Help your child to improve their writing skillsby encouraging them to trace over the dotted lines using a pancil.This will help to build your child's muscles in their hands and will help them to learn to hold a pencil correctly.
Once you have practised your writing skills, come into preschooland show us your brilliant work!
Help your child to improve their cutting skills by encouraging them to have one hand on th epaper and the other hand to cut. As your child does this, they will be building all the tiny muscles in their hands because they will need to continually open and close their hands to grip.
Talk to your child about how to use scissors safely, once you have practised your cutting skills come into pre-school and show us your amazing work!
