Preparation to Help Your Child Start School

If your child is ready and wanting to write letters or numbers we thought it might be helpful to see the resources we use in school to help your child form their letters and numbers correctly.

Our phonics scheme is Read Write Inc by Ruth Miskin, so we introduce letter sounds (phonemes) with a ditty (rhyme) that helps the children to remember how to form the letter.  

You can find out more information about Read Write Inc here: Read Write Inc Website

Here are the letter formation guides that we use with the children: Read Write Inc letter formation


Here are the  number rhymes that we use to help the children to form their numbers correctly:
