Mark Making

Mark making is very important in EYFS. In Nursery, we focus on the children becoming familiar with mark making tools; holding them, controlling them and developing the skills needed to write letters. We all work on our 'YELs' each term, which are steps towards writing. These YELs are practised across the unit, both indoors and outdoors, in activities such as painting, drawing, shaving foam, salt, sand and water play. Please help your child at home develop these skills in a fun and relaxed way.





Physical development is key to helping children with their early writing skills. The children are always very active within the Nursery!
