The big question- what are mini-beasts like?

Using clay

Clay work is important for children in EYFS. Rolling and manipulating clay strengthens your child's finger, wrist and arm muscles. This is of key importance because it will enable your child to develop the muscles they need for writing. Without this development, your child will struggle to hold the pencil correctly and write for any length of time.
