Letter Formation RWI

In Reception, we teach children how to form their letters using the print handwriting style. At Whitby Heath we follow the Read Write Inc. programme for the early stages of taught handwriting and aim to make the physical process of writing – handwriting – enjoyable from the start, so that children can see themselves as ‘writers’

The Read Write Inc Phonics programme teaches letter sound correspondence through a set of mnemonics.

Each letter has a mnemonic to help children remember its sound and how to form the letter. See below:
