Handwriting

A message from Mrs Kelly, our Handwriting lead:

‘We are currently embedding a new handwriting scheme called ‘Letter Join’, into school.  The staff have been trained in how to use the ‘Letter Join’ scheme effectively to support the children in learning a joined-up style of handwriting and are modelling the joined letters across all subjects and in displays around school.

Each class timetable has been adapted to include three sessions of handwriting practice each week.  Within these sessions, new handwriting books have been introduced to support children with the sizing of their letters.  The children are working very hard to improve the presentation of their work in all subjects and we are already beginning to see big improvements in writing across the school.

Soon, we will be introducing a Home Edition of the Letter Join scheme, where you can support your child at home with their letter formation.  Watch this space!’
