Developing Fine Motor Skills


To ensure that children can develop a functional 'tripod grip' to hold their pencil with, it is really important that they have good gross motor skills (big movements using legs and arms) to then allow the fine motor skills (small movements using fingers) to develop.  If your child is struggling with smaller movement, it might be worth supporting their development of their larger movements first.

If you would like some further information about this, then please speak with your child's class team.
