Weekly Handwriting

Below are some fine motor activities to support pencil grip and control. When learning to use joined handwriting it is important children continue to demonstrate these key skills. Although this may be activities that they completed when they were younger, we often find as children begin to develop stamina for writing and write longer pieces their fingers can rub or wrists can ache. Practising these activities will help reduce this: 

 

  • Using tweezers to pick up grains of rice or other objects.
  • Threading beads, pasta.
  • Using pegs to create patterns.
  • Other activities, such as rolling and creating things with playdough are also useful for strengthening the muscles.
  • You can also search for 'finger gym' activities. 

Weekly Handwriting Focus: 

We have now added some videos to help show you HOW to join your letters that we have been focusing on. Scroll down to see some of the letters that we have done before. If you are unsure of any particular letters and how they join to others then please email and ask and we can create any specific videos to show you. 


This week, we would like you to work on ensuring your ascenders and descenders are sitting correctly on the line and are either nice and tall or sitting below the line:
