Teaching Handwriting 



We follow the Nelson handwriting scheme to enable our children to form their letters in the conventional way and write in a joined script which is neat, fluent and legible.


The scheme provides a clear, practical framework for implementing and developing a whole school full of enjoyable activities. It offers full coverage of the technical aspects of writing (including letter formation, basic joins, printing, speedwriting and slant) and these are taught in purposeful and curriculum-relevant contexts, principally in the areas of phonics, spelling, punctuation and vocabulary.

The Nelson programme goes from Reception through to Year 6



        The Nelson handwriting style and handwriting progression through the scheme are shown below.
