Please follow this link to a really good literacy project to work on.
There is also lots of good advice on these pages and podcasts.
To start with this week let's get back to basics with pencil grip.
I've posted some advice below about this for you.
Please build up slowly as it gets tiring but being with your child and supporting them a little every day you can really help them to develop their pencil control.
Use the books we have given you to practice.
Remember that lots of other activities also build up the fine motor skills necessary for writing. There are activities to show you what these are too such as playdoh and lego building.
