Handwriting for New Entrants
It is not essential for you to teach your child to write before she/he starts school because formal handwriting lessons start in the first week.
However, if you would like to do some writing with your child, it is helpful if you use the same letter shapes they will use at school.
This helps to avoid confusion.
Our printing is done in lower case letters, with the letters being formed as set out below.
