This term we have been investigating the development of a neat and consistent handwriting style. We have looked at the type of early activities that strengthen hand control and fine manipulative skills, as well as researching the benefits of introducing a new cursive script and encouraging the joining of writing earlier.
We have liaised with the Junior school to ensure practice in both Woolenwick schools complements one another.
The Junior school introduced a cursive script last year and the results have been good and so we will be introducing this at the Infant school.
