Vocabulary, comprehension, fine motor skills, maths- counting & geometry, sensory development- touch, hear, see, smell and she even gave it a taste, music- singing,

We: ROLL, CUT, PAT, PRICK, STRETCH, make a face with 2 EYES, 1 NOSE & a MOUTH, we COUNT how many balls we can make, we pretend to EAT our patty cakes, we talk about how the play dough FEELS- SMOOTH, COLD, STICKY, SOFT, SQUISHY, it LOOKS PINK, it SMELLS like peppermint, we cut SHAPES- CIRCLE, STAR… and we sing songs about our play dough: “Patty Cake”… “Roll, Roll, Roll the Dough”…

Talking with your child is so important. Not only does it strengthen the bond between you but it creates a great opportunity to expand your little one’s vocabulary, as well as increase the recognition of objects and situations outside the child’s immediate world.

Gross motor skills are a specific set of skills that involve different body parts such as feet, legs, trunk, head, arms and hands.

These skills are important because they are the “building blocks” or foundation movements for more complex and specialised skills required by children throughout their lives to competently and confidently play different games, sports and recreational activities offered at school and in the community.
