All children should be encouraged to develop pride in their work and the ability to present work appropriately through adopting a fluent, legible and consistent style, which enables children to express their pride and communicate effectively through their best presentation.
At our school, it is our intent that every child should be enabled to develop a fluent legible style of handwriting. Capital and lower-case letters should be used appropriately and the letter size should be consistent. We will provide opportunities for children to develop, practise and perfect skills and provide targeted support to any child experiencing difficulty.
Nelson Handwriting will be used as a framework however pupils are actively encouraged to explore different styles of handwriting and develop their own style.
Formation comes first and the letter formation is the priority before children begin to practise joining their letters.
