Fluent, neat and joined handwriting relies on letters being formed in the correct way and from the correct starting point. At Driffield CE Infant School we ensure that children are all taught this consistently by teaching weekly short and focused handwriting sessions.
Your child is taught how to form each letter according to the guide below from Foundation Stage. It is important children form each letter correctly as this will support them well when they begin to join their handwriting in Year Two. Please encourage your child to use the correct letter formation when completing homework activities or any other writing activities at home (for example writing greetings cards). Bad habits developed early on are very difficult to break!
