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.

 

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.
