In school we encourage the children to use cursive handwriting. Your child has been given a handwriting sheet to keep at home to show you how each letter is formed. If you need another one then just let us know. We will also move on to think about how to start joining our letters.
If you want to practice writing at home with your child you could practice writing these letters on ordinary lined paper or a note pad. You could even practice writing the letters as part of words or sentences. It is a good idea to practice the children's spellings using correctly formed letters too.
Below is an example sheet showing how we form our letters at school.
