St John's C of E Primary School

"Use your God-given gifts to serve others." 1 Peter 4: 10


When children are ready to write, they are taught continuous cursive handwriting by learning the different letter families. In reception, children learn to form letters when learning phonics and during writing focused activities. The 'Teach Handwriting' resources are used during handwriting lessons, they provide videos and printable resources for handwriting practice. Handwriting is not only taught during stand alone lessons, it is something that is taught during any writing opportunity to ensure that standards always stay high. We have seen pleasing improvements in the presentation and cursive writing skills across the whole school.
