Writing > Word Focus (Spelling and Handwriting) > Handwriting > Ww/E1.2b Form digits
(i) Form digits 1 to 9 with some accuracy, developing knowledge of where to start and the way in which the number is usually formed
Example of application and level:
- Take down phone number and name spelt aloud by another person.
- Following a discussion of the formation of numbers, where to start each number, direction, which ones have ‘bodies’, ‘legs’, etc., learners trace and fill in dotted outline of numbers. They then ask each other their telephone numbers and write them down.
- Learners listen to a list of numbers and type them in order. They then print them out and check them against original hard copy.
- Learners write or copy with understanding their house and telephone number on a simple form.
