We have been working really hard to improve our handwriting this half term.
Every morning when we come in to school we put our things away and then sit at our tables to get going. We have been making sure that we start and finish our letters in the correct place and thinking about the size of the letters in relation to each other.
Look how lovely some of our handwriting is getting.
How to support at home
- Make sure your child arrives at school on time – handwriting happens between 8.45 and 9am each day.
- Watch your child as they complete their weekly handwriting homework – this is important as it ensures they are using the correct formation.
- Find opportunities for your children to write for a purpose e.g. shopping lists, birthday/ Christmas cards, notes for family members.
