Handwriting

The Year 1 Team thought it might be useful for parents to have access to some resources to support handwriting, so please see some below.

This document is designed to support with the lead ins and lead outs from letters, which will help the children to transition from pre-cursive to cursive (joined) handwriting:

This is the line guide we use for our handwriting lessons at school. You can use it to write a word or letter for your child to practice repeatedly. Please note that descending letters such as ‘p’ and ‘q’ need to sit on the green (grass) and move downwards into the brown (soil) section. Ascending letters such as ‘d’ and ‘b’ need to sit on the green (grass) and move upwards into the blue (sky) section.
