Writing with chalk

Nursery children have been engaging in writing with chalk outside, this activity can greatly benefit their physical development. As they grip the chalk and make marks on the ground or chalkboard, they are refining their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. The act of writing with chalk also encourages children to use larger arm movements and engage their shoulder muscles, promoting gross motor development. Additionally, writing with chalk in different positions such as standing, kneeling, or lying down helps enhance their balance and spatial awareness. Home learning – children can have a go outside in the park drawing using chalk.
