Physical and well being work


I hope you had lots of fun getting moving last week smiley 


Try to exercise every day to stay fit and healthy, it is so important.


As part of our physical skills this week I would like you to practise enhancing your fine and gross motor skills. 


Fine motor activity


Who wants to make some playdough?

Don't panic I have found a really easy recipe that will make it very straightforward. You will be using just THREE simple ingredients:



Food colouring if you want to, but you don't need it to create your playdoughsmiley

That's it!


Here is the link to make that easy playdough-  


Play some dough disco, follow this link, it is great fun:


Once you have made your playdough you can practise enhancing your fine motor skills. Fine motor skills help you in lots of ways, for example, with your pencil control and writing. 

Below are some fun ways you can practise those fine motor skills using playdough. These are just ideas for the many ways you can use playdough creatively, you don't have to follow the theme of under the sea just have fun and practise those skills.









Gross motor skills activities


  • Using the larger muscles in your body, for example, running, skipping or jumping.


  • Examples of how to practise gross motor skills: 
  • Throwing, catching and kicking larger and smaller balls, for example, use a football then a tennis ball to make it more difficult.
  • Balancing 
  • Set up an obstacle course
  • Target throwing using hoops, you can create targets and use different items that you may have at home to play target throwing. Make the targets closer or further away to make it more challenging.









Get creative, stay active and keep moving.


Good luck yes
