Emergent writing

Many opportunities are provided through the nursery to encourage the children’s writing skills. This starts in our baby room through promoting physical skills through sensory play and develops with the children up to beginning to form recognisable letters. Mark making ideas can be as simple as drawing circles in sand or yogurt or as complex as making marks to represent numbers during a counting activity. Children’s mark making should be encouraged and celebrated at all stages as strong mark makers will make confident writers in the future.
