Fine motor and handwriting camp

Does your child try to avoid handwriting or find it makes their hand really ache? Do people say their writing is messy even though they’re trying their best? Does your child find it hard to keep up in class? We will be doing lots of fun activities and exercises to help them work better and make handwriting easier. This camp is aimed at helping with all aspects of handwriting and will include activities to assist:

  • Core body strength and shoulder stability
  • Body posture and hand positioning
  • Manual dexterity and pencil grasp
  • Fluidity of writing movements
  • Handwriting legibility
  • Typing

When?  Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 12 midday.
