With our focus very much on writing this year, we have been thinking outside the box to help children develop core skills that will support their style and presentation. Table Tennis is perfect for this as it requires amazing hand eye coordination, good upper body strength, good focus and a developed attention span. We are hoping our new tables and table tennis club plus practise in our Power Learning sessions will further support our children in their writing ability.
The children were allowed to try out the tables at lunch time today with Mr Lloyd and Mr Holmes going head to head! They were a huge hit and children from all years wanted to give it a go. Watch this space for the impact on their handwriting and presentation!
