Just like that it’s back to school already! Wow that summer went fast. I think that’s because I don’t have to go back to school myself. Good luck to all the teachers, NQTs, parents, careers and most importantly the children this week. Scissors ~ I mentioned in stories the other day that we’ve been using scissors loads at home. Using scissors doesn’t start with cutting. It’s important that muscles in hands are developed through play e.g. building bricks, using tongs or large tweezers, playdough, messy play, lacing + threading beads, stacking cups, tearing paper or using hammer tools. Other things to practice cutting than paper is; playdough, food (cooked spaghetti, herbs, lettuce), strips of paper or making snips into items. Is there anything else you use at home or school to cut? - Free Teaching Resources - Print Play Learn
