Our Copies

Mrs Murphy's packs include Pattern Letter Writing .

The Benefits


Pre-cursive approach to writing for infants.

Graded Writing

Graded writing developed in a structured way. Children begin with writing patterns, leading to writing letters, words and sentences with confidence and fluency.

Day 1

Junior Infant children can start their Pattern Copy on day 1 of the new school year.

All 26 Letters

All 26 letters included (Junior Infants - lower case, Senior Infants - capital letters).


Designed with a phonetic approach - CVC and rhyming words in Junior Infants, consonant and vowel digraphs in Senior Infants.


HFW used in phrases and sentences.


These copies allow for differentiation as children progress through the writing stages at their own pace under teacher guidance and supervision.


Children frequently struggle with letter heights. These copies offer support by using red and blue lines throughout until the children become confident writers.


Revision / Assessment pages incorporated throughout.
