This is a video I made for my Year 4 Funky Fingers group, but you can try these warm up exercises too! They’re great for your arms, hands and fingers.
Find the handwriting lines on the class page. If you don’t have a printer, you can still practise your rainbow writing in your books or on a piece of lined paper. Remember, always start your letters on the line every time!
Play this fun game with a grown up or your brother/sister and see who can get the most pieces of paper in their cups. It’s a perfect activity for building strength of your fine motor skills and coordination. Anyone can play - the more the merrier (just make sure they don’t cheat, like Alfred!) Have fun :)
In our Funky Fingers group, we have been writing to our classmates in Year R to find out all about them and to tell them things about ourselves. This activity is for EVERYONE! Why not write a letter to someone you haven’t seen in a long time - a friend, family member or teacher! I have uploaded some resources to the class page to assist you, but if you don’t have access to a printer, that’s ok, you can use a piece of writing paper! Take a photo and send it in, we’d love to see your handwriting practise!
Just a quick message to parents from Miss Franklin.
