  • Pencil skills – pre-writing, shapes, tracing, writing names.
  • Scissor skills – holding scissors, using scissors to snip and cut.
  • Activities of daily living relating to school life – working in a group, managing belongings, dressing skills, canteen orders, asking for help.

  • Children aged 4 – 6 years (pre-school aged children)
