All children are encouraged to learn to write using a tripod grip (see above) as this supports good letter formation and writing fluency and also reduces muscle fatigue as children begin to write more.

We teach handwriting using pre-cursive script initially, so that children learn how to form letters properly and develop pencil control skills. As they become more confident they learning to join their script so that it becomes more fluid and efficient.


Letter formation is taught using groups of similarly formed letters, each with a character and a group name, to support the children in knowing where to begin their letter and the movement needed to create the letters correctly.
