In this programme, we will be expanding the children’s understanding of how to write. We will be going right back to basics, looking at letter formation and how to hold a pencil correctly. From here we will look at developing their understanding of sentence structure, grammar, punctuation and language features. Each week will have a specific learning outcome that will lead to the children understanding basic writing skills and promote a thirst for vocabulary. We will be using exercises to strengthen their hand muscles and weekly problem solving that will improve cognitive development. Each task will have visual, auditory and kinaesthetic resources to appeal to all types of learners.
