Please practise hearing these sounds at the beginning, the middle or end of words:
sun ant igloo mop sad dice tin pit Sam dig ban net pig pen nest dog mug duck pen
Read these words.
Sound out each letter and then blend them together.
i-s a-n i-t i-n
s-i-t p-a-n t-i-n
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!
Thank you to parents who have already done so!
They are great to see!!
