Dear Parents and Carers,

This past term we have made the decision, as a school, to change our handwriting program to Letter-join. Letterjoin is not vastly different than our previous program (Cambridge University’s Penpals for Handwriting). We will still be teaching children standard formation, as detailed below, in Reception and Year 1. Then, once the children have accurate formation, they will begin to join all letters in Year 2.

The program also continues to develop handwriting into Key Stage Two. Another great feature of Letterjoin is the availability to use at home. 

Please take the time to explore and enjoy Letter-join!
