Please see above for a copy of our handwriting script which was introduced to all classes in September 2014. Please encourage your child to use this script. Children learn how to write the letters in Nursery (starting with their names) and develop to learn how to form all letters in the Reception year. In Year 1 children start learning how to join letters and we would expect that most children will be joining fluently by Year 3.
This style of writing supports all children to know where to start each letter (every letter starts on the line) it also lays the foundations that move smoothly into joining once a child is ready. Learning to write words using this script has also been shown to support children to learn their spellings.
