What writing skills and knowledge do we learn about in Reception?

In Reception, we help children develop a wide range of writing skills with the end goals of:

writing recognisable letters, most of which are correctly formed;

spelling words by identifying sounds in them and representing the sounds with a letter or letters;

writing simple phrases and sentences that can be read by others.
