All children will be taught to form letters correctly from when they enter school like below
In EYFS and Year 1 the children will be taught to join digraphs through their phonics sessions, this is then built upon as they progress through school so that they meet the government expectation that all children will be able to join fluently by the end of Year 6.
Ways to support your child:
- Practise writing letters at home… on paper… on the pavement outside… in flour… anything!
- Use the letter families to help support correct letter formation.
- Support motor skills development through a range of activities to strengthen fingers. This might range from building with Lego to creating a sculpture out of playdough.
