    This week we're thinking about the colour 'yellow'. Why not have look around your house to see how many yellow things you can find, for example a yellow car, a yellow brick or a yellow crayon. You could also have a look for yellow things outside when you go for a walk or play in the garden. 

    Physical Activity:

    There are lots of different things we can do to practise our fine motor skills so that we develop more control in our hands and fingers. Why not try some of the ideas on these Activity Cards

    Remember to do some physical exercise everyday to keep your body fit and healthy! There are so many different ways you can do this - go for a walk, ride your bike or play football in the garden. You could also try this Hey Duggee workout -  have fun!
