Life in all its fullness

Friday 23rd September

Have a go at these handwriting patterns - they will really help with letter formation!


I have also added a video showing how to write the letters correctly.

Please don't panic!


Just concentrate with your child writing the letters in their own first name correctly at first.

I will be sending home a laminated name card that you can practise at home with a whiteboard pen. Remember to start at the red dot.



Correct formation is very very important.

If your child learns to write the letters correctly now in Reception class they will find cursive writing in Year 1 very easy.


Have fun writing the letters on a tray in shaving foam, sand, glitter, rice etc.


I would love to see a photo of you having a go on Tapestry!
