Advice and guidance to help support your child’s handwriting and fine motor skills

If you are worried about your child’s handwriting, or their ability to complete independent self care skills that require more intricate hand control, they may benefit from some time focusing on their fine motor skills.

What are fine motor skills?

  • Fine motor skills are the ability to make movements using the small muscles in our hands and wrists.
  • Children use fine motor skills to do many school-related tasks.
  • There are things you can do at home to help improve your child’s fine motor skills.

Click below for suggestions, advice and activities that could help improve your child’s fine motor skills.

Developing Fine Motor Skills

Emotional well-being

Your child’s emotional well-being is at the centre of everything we do at Eastfield.  A happy child is a happy learner who has the capacity to flourish and achieve their potential.

During these uncertain and trying times, it is more important than ever to help promote and encourage positive mental health.  Talking about how they are feeling can really help with any anxieties your child might be experiencing.  If your child is finding it difficult to communicate how they are feeling, try the activities below.  They have been designed to also help develop children’s emotional literacy and improve emotional well-being.

5 A Day To Wellbeing
