Fine Motor Activity

Sewing a ‘w’ letter using a blunt needle, wool and polystyrene container. This activity generated conversation about the ‘w’ sound and what it looks like. The children were also able to exercise fine motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination which assist with writing and reading.

Creative Activity

This was a wonderful activity. The children did not want to go home at the end of the lesson. They really enjoyed creating their own ‘w’ or ‘v’ things with different materials and pasting it on the big class card.
