At 4 my son knew nothing about letters to read or write. I wasn't the least bit worried. He's nearly 6 now and is at the same standard as those, and slightly ahead in some cases, than those who could read/write at 4. For Daniel he's found it easier to read than to write but i've spoken to other people who have said that boys generally find it easier to read than write.

My daughter is 4 in Oct and again she can't do either. I'm not worried at all as i know that once at school it will come.

Bin lorries is the current obsession. He'll rip paper up and spend ages putting it the bin, emptying the bin into the lorry, putting it back in the bin and it all starts again!!!

I have a friend who's little boy is an amazing reader/writer at 3! But put him in a room of peers and he just terrorises them, hits, kicks. He is on his last warning in his pre-school. He would come up to your table in a soft play and tip it over with the coffees on!...... He has spent too much time inside learning letters than outside learning social skills

I think it's normal development for writing to come first. My DD (3) can write all the letters, but can't write any words unless I spell them for her. I don't think she's that close to reading though. She knows a few sight words and she knows most of the sounds the letters make, but doesn't understand the concept of putting the sounds together. Most of the young children I've known have learned writing before reading. Also, I haven't pushed any of this - all of her learning has been child-led. My 21-month-old points to letters and says "what's that one?" and has learned a few already, so it's not unusual for children to take an interest of their own accord.
