Handwriting

 

Our pupils will work through the stages of handwriting and will be awarded a certificate and a new pencil or pen.  Replacement pens or pencils cost 50p.

Most children begin with emergent writing which are simple marks on a page but to which children ascribe meaning.  Writing then progresses through the following stages:
 
·      Legible letters following a line
·      Correctly formed letters sitting on a line
·      Most letters formed correctly
·      All letters formed correctly
·      Starting to join letters together
·      Many letters joined together correctly
·      Neat letters, on the line, joined consistently and correctly
 

The attached Handwriting Progression document shows how children's writing develops and the guidelines at each stage.
