Every week Year 1 practise their Handwriting. We focus on different letters each week. This week our letters are ‘e’ and ‘s’.
The children use our special Handwriting books (which have special line guides) to write the letters. They also practise writing words that contain these letters, such as: elephant, sand and sheep.
The children really enjoy this lesson and listen to calming music in order to help them focus on the letters they are learning.
We also incorporate handwriting into our daily phonic lessons as we try to write the new sounds we are learning. We also incorporate it into our English lessons through our writing.
