We use the Penpals Handwriting Scheme to deliver our handwriting curriculum. Penpals for Handwriting is a complete handwriting scheme for 3-11-year olds, offering clear progression through five developmental stages. It supports and teaches children to develop a fast and fluent handwriting style to help them achieve their potential in writing.  

Each year group is equipped with a DVD-ROM for whole class teaching and practice books, as well as write-in workbooks for small group and individual work. The scheme offers a clear progression throughout, starting with the development of fine and gross motor skills in Foundation Stage 1 and building up to purposeful writing with style and speed in Year 6.
