Children begin their writing journey in Reception through various activities. These include daily gross and fine motor sessions such as Dough Disco and many activities that are available within the continued provision.
Alongside this, children begin to recognise letters using pictures and when ready, children move onto letter formation sessions. These may be in the sand, using chalk or using various other resources as well as using a pencil and paper.
As a school we follow a continuous cursive handwriting style. Children in Early Years are encouraged to form their letters in this way when they are ready.
