Take Away Tasks

Support your children's physical development by helping them to use a knife and fork independently. As well as encouraging their independence, cutting up their own food helps to strengthen the muscles in their hands and fingers and develops the co-ordination, pressure and control needed for writing.

Give your children 3 step instructions to follow e.g. can you put your coat on the peg, put your bag in your bedroom and sit at the table....for a snack after school. Can they do it? Three step instructions can be trickier than you think! The children will have to listen to the end of the instructions, hold the information in their heads, and recall what to do when moving from one room to another.
