Lopez Live! Live and in lockdown: our resident Bedford handwriting guru shows us how it is done!

What is coming up this week?

Are you sitting up straight, feet on the floor, best tripod grip ready?

This week we will be adding a new video/image each day - lined paper at the ready!

Lopez Live on Monday: ‘curly c’ letters

Reception/Year 1 children - remember to use our special sayings to practise the correct formation.

Before using paper, you can practise these letters by tracing over the poster above (or letter shapes below) with your finger.  The pencil (on the poster) shows your the correct starting point for each letter.  Using the correct starting point is so important.

 

Refer to the pencils on the poster above to ensure you have the correct starting point for each letter. All of these letters have the same ‘curly c’ shape within them. Check this/the direction when writing them.
