Early writing follows your child’s interests

Thanks to all the parents who came to the early years writing workshop this morning. We believe in encouraging the children to mark make and “write” about the things that interest them when they are in nursery and reception whether that is through re-telling traditional tales or writing letters to Santa. We explored the links to phonics, letters and sounds so that parents can help their children to sound out phonetically plausible spellings. Most of all we believe that writing should be fun and meaningful so any opportunities you can offer your child to pick up a pencil and make a mark will support their learning in school.
