Punctuation

Throughout the year the children will learn that a sentence is a group of words that make sense. It begins with a capital letter and ends with a full stop. Words must be separated with finger spaces. Capital letters are used for names and the use of the personal pronoun I.

 

Formation

Throughout the year the children will learn to use a pencil and hold it effectively to form recognisable letters.   They will be taught to form letters correctly from the correct starting points.  Some children will begin to be able to write on lines and control letter size.
