Letter Formation Practise

Letter formation is a key skill for the children in EYFS and KS1.   By the end of Year 1 they should be able to form all of their letters correctly making them a consistent size and sit them on a line.  This can take a lot of practise so we suggest you regularly revisit these at home to ensure they remember how to form them correctly.


To help children remember the correct letter formation we teach them a short rhyme that they then recite as they write the letter.  This is demonstrated in the video below.
