During the afternoon we visited Ngwino Nawe and provided some teacher training. The teachers had asked for some ideas for promoting writing skills.
Using a wide variety of resources we explained the development of handwriting skills included gross and fine motor skills.
We shared ideas such as tug of war with Lycra fabric to pegging and painting patterns on the blackboard with water .
We then introduced some outdoor learning using the freshly painted learning walls. We used the parachute to identify colours and then found matching coloured objects on the walls. We created shapes next to the shape wall, using lolly sticks and played lots of number games .
We finished by demonstrating the measuring wall and every member of staff was very keen to have their height checked !
