Handwriting

In Nursery and Reception classes, children are taught letter formation from the Read-Write-Inc. phonics programme. Children learn correct letter formation using picture mnemonics. Letters are taught in handwriting groups, e.g. ‘around letters’ such as ‘c’ and ‘d’ and ‘Down letters’ such as ‘l’ and ‘m’.

 

Handwriting is taught daily in Key Stage 1 (Years 1-2). Teachers are supported by the Nelson handwriting scheme. For more detail, see our Handwriting Policy.
