Handwriting at Ash Grange

Step 1

Step 2

Children learn to add the lead in and out of the letter


Step 3

Children join pairs of letters


Step 4

Children write more and more letters together until the can write in a joined fluid script.


Children move through the stages at their own pace, but by year 3 it is out intention that all children are able to write in joined script (the youngest awarded inscribed ink pen was to Jacob when he was in Year 1!).



a) Chilren write in penic, modified to their need e.g. chunky pencils with grips.

b) Children write in a school pen, modified to their need e.g. different types to allow child to write well. Left handed pens are provided as standard.

c) When children present their work well, in fluent script, they are able to earn handwriting points. There are certificates awarded in assembly to celebrate 10, 25 and 50 points. The top certificate earns the child an inscribed fountain pen, in the design of their choice.
