Handwriting

Handwriting is an important part of the National Curriculum and we are having a big focus on it this year at Moston Fields! The emphasis on handwriting has increased significantly and we would like to share with you the expectations for children in Key Stage 1 and 2. We firmly believe in working in partnership with our parents/carers and value the support that home can offer.

 

We are using the cursive Martin Harvey scheme topped up with other resources. Pupils from EYFS to Year Six will practise their handwriting every day in order to be able to develop a fluent and legible style of handwriting in line with the National Curriculum requirements.

 

Expectations for the end of Year 1:

  • sit correctly at a table, holding a pencil comfortably and correctly
  • form lower-case letters in the correct direction, starting and finishing in the right place
  • form capital letters
  • form digits 0-9
  • understand which letters belong to which handwriting ‘families’ (letters that are formed in similar ways) and to practise these

 

Expectations for the end of Key Stage 1:

  • form lower case letters that are all the same size
  • use diagonal and horizontal strokes to join letters
  • know which letters are break letters
  • write capital letters, lower case letters and numbers the right way, the correct size relative to each other
  • use spacing between words which fit with the size of the letters
