Mark making and early writing in Airfield Class
This week we have all been very keen to participate in mark-making activities to develop our early writing skills. Providing simple writing materials – notepads, clipboards and a purpose to write really engages children in writing activities. We spent time assessing the outdoor pirate ship as inspectors and ‘wrote’ our findings on the clipboards. We played at cafes and wrote lists of what our customers would like to eat. We even designed an amazing airport and added lots of details including a ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ lane.
Many of the children are beginning to use the letters that they have been taught to write down simple words and phrases. What clever children we are!
