In this activity pupils work in groups and make a letter shape in the damp sand tray. Each pupil in the group traces over the shape, going a little deeper each time. The object is to get down to the base of the sand tray without the sides falling in.
During this activity pupils will:
- practise forming letters
- practise linking sounds to letters
- practise their fine motor control.
