Funky Fingers

                                   Welcome to our 'Funky Finger Area' page. 

                                             The benefits of having 'funky fingers'!


When children begin to write, their fingers and hands have to work as hard as a marathon runner's legs! No one would run a marathon without training first, therefore in the Nursery we aim to make those little hands and fingers as strong as possible to improve our children's fine motor control.


Fine motor control skills are not only important for holding pencils, but also zipping up coats and fastening buttons, cutting with scissors, using utensils, completing jigsaws and the list goes on!
