I was talking to a teacher from a different school the other day and she mentioned some guidance on reading and phonics which says that the writing part of any phonics session must be done sitting ' properly' at a table. I can't remember the name of the scheme or guidance so wondered if anyone had a clue what I'm talking about!!

Will all depend on the scheme you choose.

Bearing in mind however that all schemes are just someones repackaging of something that we all probably did anyway.

If they are writing in books then a table would seem more sensible though to develop a correct body posture for handwriting. (We are talking about reception)

only of course if the tables are ergonomically designed for their correct height and size...... our local schools both have the incorrect size for age furniture (furniture companies have not kept up with current trends of size and most unfortunately recommend wrong leg length chairs.) posture for writing is often improved by slopes rather than flat surfaces and most children of this age are still strengthening wrist and elbow pivots so may well de better using other surfaces ...of course traditionally we have been used to seeing classrooms look a certain way...it doesn't mean it's right though! :o

 

only playing devils advocate of course :ph34r::ph34r: :ph34r: :rolleyes: xDxD
