Writing

Here are some key skills that you can help your children with at home:
  • Practise forming letters correctly with a good pencil grip
     
  • Work on writing simple consonant, vowel, consonant words eg. cat, by being a robot and splitting up the words into the sounds which they can hear
     
  • When children are ready encourage them to plan a setence, remember it and try to write it down - thinking about which word comes next, what sounds can they hear, finger spaces between words and a full stop at the end
     
  • If children can write sentences independently encourage them to use a capital letter and full stop, to make them more interesting by joining sentences together with "and", "so", "but", "if", "because", etc. and using adjectives
