Handwriting

New Handwriting Style

Click on the link to see the new cursive handwriting style at White Court School. Research suggests this will not only help with their handwriting, but also their spelling and progress in writing.   We firmly believe this will benefit all of our children throughout the different stages of writing, whether they are learning to form letters, learning to join, or completing extended pieces of writing further up the school. Every letter starts from the line, and all letters are joined (except capitals).

·        Foundation Stage and Year 1 will not be taught to join the letters, but may naturally try.

·        Joining will be officially introduced during Year 2.

·        From the beginning of Year 3, all children will join their letters.

Thank you in advance for supporting us in introducing this new style of handwriting, particularly in this initial change over period.
