According to a recent YouGov poll, teachers say half of new UK pupils are not ‘school ready’ – with some unable to hold a pencil.

The Early Writing Screener is a quick and easy check for parents to see if their toddler is on track for early writing success. The screener asks children to draw and write the names of some simple objects. Results from the test will indicate if the child understands the symbolic nature of language, a skill necessary in literate societies, and it will also give parents advice on what they can do at home to help their child develop better writing skills.

The screener, developed by More Curricular, is based on research on how children learn to write. Even though it is recommended for children from age two years and eight months, by making use of this screener, children will be one step closer to developing strong writing skills that will help them throughout their academic careers.

“We carried out a screener for a child who was almost three years old,” Co-Founder, Yvette Reinfor recalled, “She was bright and articulate. She could say and recognise all the letters in the alphabet, but she struggled to write them. Our screener revealed that she did not understand the outer form of writing. We gave her parents some simple steps to follow, and the problem was resolved within a few weeks.”
