When writing remind your child to use their phonics to clap and sound out words, remind them of tricky words, remind them to use a capital letter, finger spaces and full stops. Please encourage your child and allow them to phonetically sound out the words e.g. when writing ice-cream your child may write ighs kreem. This is phonetically plausible for us to read back J
