After last years success in seeing many children vastly improve their fine motor skills, I am very excited to share that Mrs Bunce’ High 5 Team is up and running for 2020! In High 5, we explore fine motor control and social skills over the course of a six week programme. High Five is aimed at children exhibiting challenge with fine motor skills eg: handwriting skills, lack of hand strength, difficulties with manual dexterity, struggling to coordinate cutlery and difficulty dressing. The ethos of the programme is to encourage positivity and a ‘can do’ attitude. The children are able to participate in a range of activities with a focus on cutting, drawing, tearing, colouring and manipulating materials with their hands to gain confidence in these skills in a fun way

Already, after week 1, many of the children in the group are showing improved cutting and colouring skills. I cannot wait to see the progress they will make!
