Handwriting

This is the handwriting script that we now teach across our school, beginning in Reception.  (Please note the new "f" that we are using from September 2017.)

 

Up until Year 4, the children have discrete handwriting lessons where this script it taught.  As they become more confident, we expect the children to begin to use it in their free writing.

 

Once children enter Year 3 they are elligible to work towards gaining their "Pen Licence" if they can demonstrate beautiful, joined handwriting in all of their exercise books.

 

In years 5 and 6, children are expected to concentrate on their presentation and join their handwriting.

Letter-join is an online teaching tool for handwriting.   We have sent home login details for this (please ask your class teacher if you have misplaced these).

Of particular interest would be the animations in the "easy letters" and "harder letters" sections which show you how each letter is formed.
