How To Get A Four Year Old To Write – EYFS

When children start school in Reception, it is not uncommon for them to have significant difficulties in reading and writing.

Often we become frustrated because a child ‘isn’t listening’ or ‘won’t do as he/she is told’. If we don’t model what good behaviour is, we mustn’t expect it. If we don’t show children what good sitting is, we shouldn’t complain when they don’t do it.
