Is your child ready to write?

The picture below shows the difference between a typical younger child's hand (left) and a typical older child's hand (right). Younger children's hands are often not fully formed so fine motor skills are vital for children's hands to develop. This is why using playdough, colouring, cutting, gluing, playing outside, digging in dirt, sensory play, dressing up, beading, puzzles, throwing balls and many, many other activities are so important within the EYFS. We learn through play to develop these skills and give children the right opportunities to gain strength in their hands and other parts of their body so they can work towards developing their mark making and writing skills.
