Hi Year 2! I remember that many of you enjoyed doing some dough disco at school to strengthen your finger muscles which helps to improve your handwriting. It’s also a lot of fun too! 😃 I thought I would create a similar video for you to join in with at home. At the end of the video I have attached a dough recipe for you to follow so you can make your own. Have fun!!! 😃 (Video Inspired by Shonette Bason Wood’s Dough Disco)
