Target Audience: SENCo’s, EYFS leaders and practitioners
Being ready to write starts from birth as we notice the early reflex movements the baby makes in the first few hours, days and months of life. Through practical ideas we will explore how we can prepare the child to begin to make marks and write.
Aim of the course
: To develop practitioners understanding of core muscle development and the inner sensory systems of coordination, balance and body position which are required in order to be ready to mark and write.
This course will consider:
- Muscle development from the core to the shoulders, elbows, forearm, wrist, hands and fingers.
- The body’s inner sensory systems required to support mark main and writing.
- Practical ideas to develop back in your setting.
- The course will include a practical ideas pack.
Be prepared to move to revisit muscle development!
