Oxford Owl are offering access to an e-library of their  reading books free of charge.

Parents will be able to select  the  books  specified on this page  by registering on-line.

WRITING

Please  practise handwriting regularly. The formation of the letters should be in a cursive style as illustrated below. Help your child to hold their pencil correctly in a tripod grip if they are not already doing so.

Children should only use capital letters at the beginning of sentences or  the names of people/places. Children should not be using capital letters to write complete words – this is printing, not handwriting.

PLEASE  HELP YOUR CHILD TO PRACTISE WRITING THEIR NAME EVERY DAY UNTIL THEY CAN  WRITE IT FROM MEMORY WITH ALL  THE LETTERS  FORMED CORRECTLY.

Drawing also develops good pencil control as does colouring-in. How are your child’s drawings developing? Please encourage them to draw and colour as much as possible.

Scissor skills are also important. Encourage your child to cut out pictures from newspapers/magazines,  or their own drawings, using safe children’s scissors.
