Emergent Writing at Nursery

Media Elements


We value every mark made by the children in Early Years education through the Nursery and Reception classes.

This mark-making gradually evolves to include letters and then words.

By valuing their emergent writing we develop confident ‘writers’.

The children very quickly begin to apply their understanding of phonics when they are writing and celebrate the fast progress they make.
