Write your name every day!
The children have been making great progress with name writing. We practise writing our names everyday after lunch so it would be great if you could keep this up at home. I have attached a photo with a few ideas to try. Help your child by teaching them how to hold their pencil, with a low tripod grip- see video, and encourage them to push on the paper if the result is very faint. Scroll down to find out all about ‘dough disco’ – a fun way to develop your child’s finger strength in preparation for writing,
If your child can copy their name and it is correctly formed, the next step is to write their first name from memory. If your child is confident writing their first name from memory, please continue to learn to copy, then memorise their surname.
Please watch the video below for the correct way to hold a pencil. This is extremely important!
Please upload pictures of your child’s name writing progress on to Evidence Me!
