Children are encouraged to write for a purpose at home. Children are encouraged to use capital letters and full stops, and begin to use question marks and exclamation marks. Any home activities our children engage in, encourage them to write about it. For example:
Encourage them to use their phonics to spell words. Some will be tricky as they cannot be sounded out (e.g. of, the, they). Spellings are in the Pupil Planner.
Have fun practicing handwriting too - in the bath, tracing letters through the bubbles, or in your garden with a stick in the mud.
