Clever Caterpillars!

Recently we have been focusing on the formation of letters. We are encouraging; the correct pencil grip, ‘starting letters from the top’,  retracing vertical lines (‘not taking the pencil off the page’), sitting the letters on the line and clear letter distinction (size).

We have also introduced letter families to the children. You will receive a handout about these at parents evening next week. The children are most familiar with ‘curly caterpillar letters’. These are displayed in the photo below from one of our pupils.
