This interactive, team-based activity gets pupils to practise forming capital letters of the alphabet using string. Making it a race adds to the fun, but also engages the pupils to monitor and peer review the letters they create. The winner isn’t the team who finishes first but the one whose letters look the best!


During this activity pupils will:

  1. practise recognising and forming capital letters
  2. practise linking sounds to capital letters
  3. experience peer-to-peer learning
  4. work in teams
  5. practise their problem-solving skills.
