How to hold a pencil correctly

Still image for this video
In reception this week we have been learning how to hold our pencils. Please ensure that when your child is writing, drawing or mark making at home they are using the correct pencil grip. We have put this short video together to demonstrate how you can support this at home.
We call this the baby shark grip. Your child needs to hold the pencil with 3 fingers, this is why it is called the tripod grip. Please ensure the pencil is secure and pointing towards them in their dominant hand, not facing away from them or upright. If your child is finding holding a pencil tricky this may be because it is too heavy for them so please try and shorter pencil.

Oxford Reading Buddy


Please follow the link for a parent guide on using our online reading platform. Your child has a unique username and password. This will be given to you which will enable you to access the website. This will replace paper books being sent home (due to COVID-19) so please engage in this invaluable resource.
