Noticing the development of writing skills

We have been noticing how the children are demonstrating their growing ability to mark make in a range of media. This ability shows that the children have had rich physical experiences which have built their motor control and visual skills – alongside with a desire to represent what they see to share with others.

Circles and lines are appearing – which we know are the foundations of most of the letter shapes. They also enable the children to draw recognisable pictures – look for the spiders, sun and people. Its a fabulous privilege to be part of this journey with the children.
