Practicing Writing!


Happy Friday everyone!

The Sunflowers have really enjoyed practicing their writing skills recently. They sat together beautifully, working as a team sounding out the letters to see what word it formed. They then each took the pencil in a pincer grip with their preferred hand and began to trace along the dots to form the different letters.

This activity helps with the children’s fine motor skills massively. It teaches them how to blend letters together to form words. It was amazing to watch them sound out the different words on their own, they were so determined to figure out what they were independently!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
