Wednesday afternoons we focus on our writing skills. Before the children can write letters and words, they need to be able to draw the Pre-Writing shapes. We have done a lot of practice on these in the classroom and the whole class can nearly draw all of them.
With your child can you draw the pre-Writing shapes. If there are any shapes your child is struggling with then continue to practice this shape. If your child has completed these then move on to the next stage.
We are now looking closely at letter formation. The children need to write on the line and Pre-cursively. Some letters are ascenders and some are descenders. Go through the alphabet and form each letter correctly. Can you spot which letters are ascenders and which are descenders?
Use the video below to help you form your letters.
I hope you have had a fun afternoon learning from home. Please send us your photos from you learning, we love to see them. Here is a story to end our day.
Until tomorrow Miss Mayer and Miss Davies
