Parents’ guide to handwriting
It can be difficult to know whether your child’s handwriting is normal for their age group or whether they would benefit from some extra support at home.
Please find useful information and resources on the following website to help your child become a happy writer.
The Teach Handwriting Scheme and website teaches the capital letters together with a choice of the three main lower-case font styles taught in UK schools: print (manuscript), cursive and continuous cursive.
As a school, we have chosen to use :
Teaching Route B - choice 2
To first teach the print (manuscript) font style; then the single letter continuous cursive font style; finally joining the letters.
