Handwriting

At the start of Year 2 they begin to form cursive letters with a lead in stroke. Every cursive letter begins on the line and all tail letters loop to join the next letter. Children learn a fully cursive style, all letters join to one another. As the children progress through Key Stage 2 handwriting becomes more fluent. Pupils with fully joined, neat cursive handwriting are awarded a Pen Licence and pen, giving permission for them to write in their schoolwork in pen.
