Event - Handwriting Workshops

29 and 30 November 2016

All classes benefitted from a handwriting consultant working with them to launch a new handwriting initiative for the whole school.

There were several key messages:

  • BBC (Bottom Back Chair) and TNT (Tummy Near the Table) form the correct sitting position for writing neatly.
  • You need to use both hands (one to hold the pen/pencil; one to hold the paper)
  • You need to use six feet (two of your own and all four of your chair – placed firmly on the ground)
  • Hold the pen/pencil using a three-point grip.

Everybody was introduced to different letter families and had a lesson teaching the correct letter formation. Children are really working hard to improve their handwriting, updates will follow!
