Handwriting

Intent

We want all children at Woodthorpe to take pride in their presentation and we encourage the use of cursive/joined handwriting style throughout school.

In Foundation stage and KS1 we teach pre-cursive handwriting, with most children beginning to join by the end of Year 2. In Key Stage 2 all children will be using cursive, joined up handwriting.

In Year 1 and 2 the children practise handwriting for ten minutes each day.
