Support early writing at home:
Many of our children, just like in Reading, are showing a fantastic ability to apply their Phase 3 letters and sounds when writing sentences. Writing sentences, in itself, is a tricky task for children so please be patient when you're supporting them to write independently.
Below are examples of the expectation of Reception children by the end of the academic year - note how the sentences are spelt phonetically using the letters and sounds children know. This is the expectation in Reception.
- Supporting the children to write independently is much more valuable than writing and sentence and getting them to copy words.
- Please don't worry if you are finding it hard to get your child to write at home, we will upload daily ideas to support sentence writing; particularly for any reluctant boys.
