Pdfs with further info about supporting reading and writing

At preschool age we need to help our children to get ready for reading and writing by building some basic skills - using their big muscles (arms and legs), using their small muscles (hands and wrists), and building dexterity (using their hands skilfully).  See the downloads for more info on how you can help.
