Look at all this mess…

Pre-Nursery came into class today and found a big pile of sand on the floor.

#ld and #as went over to investigate, #ld pointed and said, “Sand.”

#erc noticed there were, “Five brushes” and also said, “I made a circle,” as she made marks in the sand.


Using brushes is an excellent way to develop gross motor skills and co-ordination; repeated movement patterns play an essential part in brain development. Children need lots of opportunities to develop their gross motor skills as these provide the foundations for handwriting.
