Developing physical dexterity and cross and fine motor skills for EYFS but equally in all children:-
Following some training at school focused on improving writing with an emphasis on boys we discovered Shonette Bason and DOUGH DISCO.
BIO:- An experienced Early Years teacher shares her tips on taking EYFS children outside the classroom, and advice on making teaching and learning fun, in this pedagogy resource for the statutory Early Years curriculum.
Ofsted outstanding Early Years practitioner and CPD trainer Shonette Bason, shares her passion for the statutory Early Years outdoor curriculum, and gives advice to help others build their confidence in this area.
Shonette is joined by other Early Years and primary practitioners and gives hints on how to make learning fun and effective outside the classroom within Early Years Foundation Stage.
As a staff we were very taken by this. This included not only the EYFS team but equally staff in UKS2 who commented upon the poor dexterity of key children where they felt something was missing. I am anticipating an increase in ordering plastercine and ingredients for making play dough!
I’m very keen to take these ideas into my new school for EYFS.
These aren’t pictures of children I know but the excitement and engagement on their faces speaks volumes.
