Here are some videos to help you support handwriting at home. We teach handwriting in four different families: the Curly Caterpillar letters, Ladder letters, Zig-Zag Monster letters and One Armed Robot letters. In Reception we learn these using our special rhymes to help us remember and in Key Stage 1 we always remember to add our 'take offs' and 'flicks' to help get us ready for joined up writing in Year 3. We call this cursive handwriting. Simply click on video below text.
