Class 3 had their first proper handwriting session today. Properly, fully cursive with lead-ins and joins too. The class liked it so much they asked for sheets to take home! I just love it when children ask for homework!
There’s a big variation of pencil grip in our school, and this is something that we’ll need to focus in on. Proper pencil grip is paramount for a neat and comfortable handwriting style. Have a look at this diagram below… and have a close look at your child’s – how’d they do? How’s yours I wonder?? 🙂
