Literacy Information and Resources

Literacy

 

On this page you will find resources to support the 'Write it' section on the 'Home Learning Grid'. Scroll down to the bottom for the WC 13th July worksheets.

 

The main focus in EYFS is that children can hear the initial sounds in words. For example they can hear the f in fish and the d in dog. 

 

The next step is for your child to be able to segment the sounds in simple words and blend them together. For example. now they will be able to hear and write more sounds in fish. It may well be f-i-sh and dog will be d-o-g.

 

The next step is writing short sentences which they can begin reading back to themselves. 

 

How can I support my child?

When supporting your child with their writing it is important that you allow them to use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. Therefore if your child is writing the word fish and they can't hear the 'sh' sound at the end this is where they are developmentally and it is important to support that. In class we would add a little annotation in a different colour pen after their writing to help add meaning to their marks.
