We have started our squiggle whilst you wriggle journey in F1. This is a series of movements and activities written by Shonette Bason to develop children’s motor skills to enable them to become successful mark makers and writers. As stated in her book: ‘To be able to write your brain needs to have control over your fine muscles but also it needs to know where it’s arms are and then hands and the most important part the body for writing ? The fingers! Co-ordination is the key skill in assisting a child to become a successful writer.’

In F1 each week we will be exploring different movements in a variety of ways.
