Handwriting is a crucial skill for young children as it forms the foundation for effective communication and literacy. Using CVC words worksheets (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) is a fantastic way to engage children in the process of improving their handwriting while simultaneously strengthening their phonemic awareness.

Reception students often start their journey with handwriting by learning how to form letters and understand letter-sound correspondence. CVC words are an ideal starting point because they consist of simple, common sounds and letter combinations, making them easy for children to grasp. They provide a bridge between letter formation and reading.

Jelly and Bean’s reading scheme follows the phonic progression of the UK government’s Letters and Sounds, including the introduction of the first 100 high-frequency words, followed by the next 200 words.
