A couple of parents have asked us for some further guidance on how to help their child to correctly form letters, in the same style as at school. At Binfield, our letters are formed using ‘lead ins.’ It is important for children to learn to write letters using these whilst they are in Reception, in order to prepare them for cursive (joined up) handwriting further up the school.
We have created a short video explaining this in more detail and showing how each letter is formed. This is the first time we have produced a video like this and would really appreciate any feedback you may have (both positive and developmental ones!)
If there are any other topics which you feel we can better explain to you in this way, please do let us know – our aim is to support you in helping your child with their learning at home.
