FS Join the Ranks of the Superhero!
With young children there are certain skills that are key to development such as the proprioceptor skills - the sense that, amongst other things, tells the body where it is in space, plays a role in self-regulation, coordination and the ability to focus. Fine motor skills and developing finger strength and a ‘pinch grip’ are also important, as these are skills that lead into early writing. Teachers are constantly looking for creative ways of focusing on the many different areas. A good example of this is described by Ms Bliss.
What an adventurous Friday morning we had! One of our favourite book characters Supertato was in distress and needed FS2’s help. Of course we were on hand with our homemade superhero capes and masks to solve the problems. We rescued different members of staff from around school that the evil pea had captured and then made a mess in all of the rooms! We had to work as part of a team to look at the pictures clues and follow directions to certain places around the school. Finally, we found all the evil peas, so we collected them and put them back in the freezer where they belong! Well done to all the FS2 superheroes for saving the day!
