........Welcome back and welcome to our new starters................


Playdough is a wonderful thing to play with. 

Normally we would allow the children use it all the time in Lions and Tigers. Unfortunately sharing it currently carries risk and therefore we do not have it. 


As it has so many benefits in developing hand muscle strength we hope you will do some playdough play at home. It is also great fun to make together and can last a long time. There is a recipe below. 


Squeezing, rolling and poking the playdough all helps to develop hand strength which will aid your child in how they hold and control a pencil. 

We recommend 'dough disco'; links to this are below.
