"Enrichment for life"


It is really important that children establish the correct pencil grip and letter formations really early on, they need to know where to start and stop letters and form them by using the correct direction. Below you will find some power points we use in class, these have the matching picture we use in phonics to give contexts, a pencil that will move to show direction (when in presentation mode) and the steps the child needs to take to be successful in forming each letter. 


Handwriting is a regular part of the school routine but could be supported in short bursts daily at home too, your support with this would be appreciated. Thank you
