Pre-writing skills are the key skills children require before they are able to write. These skills contribute greatly to the child’s ability to draw, colour and write and play a major role in their ability to hold and use a pencil.

This pack aims to develop these pre-writing skills in a fun way, building up confidence before moving onto formal letter formation. 

It can also be ordered as a gift pack which is ready to post (generally within 1 to 3 days) which included a redeemable code for the name mat to be ordered by the recipient at a later.

The 9 key pre-writing shapes make up most letters and numbers and your child will typically be able to master these shapes with practice when they are developmentally ready (see photo gallery for 'what to expect').

Our pre-writing learning mats are designed to help your child practice tracing and copying the key shapes and patterns required before moving onto letter formation. They build confidence making sure your child is truly ready to start forming letters.

Pushing a child to learn to write too early can be detrimental to their future learning in all subject areas so it is very important to take their time and get it right to avoid forming bad habits.

Why choose our learning mats?

  • A gradual approach to learning to write, designed to aid confidence and development independent letter formation (stage 1, stage 2, stage 3)
  • Our letter formation mats have clear 'starting stars' so the child knows where to begin the pencil movement and 'ending dots' so they know where to finish.  
  • 3 different designs, colourful and bright to make 'learning fun'!
  • Minimal guidelines on the name mat so less daunting for younger children.
  • Directional arrows can be added if required (select on checkout)
  • Recommended for ages 3 years and above
  • Wipeable/Reusable
  • Double-sided
  • Recommended by primary school teachers
  • Great reviews by parents

What's Included?

  • 4 x double sided wipeable mats (A4 in size)

*Use any felt tip pen and wipe away with or damp cloth

    Happy Customer

    Lovely products and service too. Would not hesitate to recommend to others.

    Sophie-Anne Pickett
    Always great quality products

    My 3rd time ordering from here and I really do love the products. The only thing was that this time my order was slightly wrong, I didn’t want arrows on lettering but it came with arrows but to be honest it doesn’t make too much of a difference I just didn’t want my child to be distracted by the arrows while having a go at writing.

    My son found these really fun and interacted well and encouraged him when didn’t show much interest in writing before.

    Ashley Rogers
    Excellent resource for early learning

    The pages are good quality and my son has enjoyed doing these and likes being able to clean them both when he makes a mistake and when it’s time to put them away. He’s still young but I can see us using these for a few years ahead.
