This year, as you are aware we have introduced a new handwriting scheme called Letterjoin.  This includes an online resource which the children can access from home, login details can  be found on the inside cover of the children's red reading record.

Each Monday we introduce a new letter or join to the children, as the letters of the alphabet are formed slightly different to how we previously taught the children and they will continue to practice these throughout the week in school and for homework in the small green books we send home each Monday.

Please find a copy of each of our letter families below for extra practice as well as logging on an allowing the childrento practice using the touch screen facility.
