It is paramount that children are taught correct letter formation from the very beginning of their time in school. As soon as the children are ready, they should sit properly in order to have the correct posture for writing, hold a pencil in the correct tripod grip and develop a legible and joined handwriting style. The school follows the Pen Pals handwriting programme. A mixture of whole class, small groups and individual teaching is planned for and delivered.
Below are the handwriting posters we use in the school to support children with their letter formation
