Teaching cursive handwriting from Reception, Archbishop Holgate's School, Monday, 07. October 2019


Target audience: Literacy subject leaders, Reception and Y1 teachers
Course leader: Alison Bailey, Pathfinder consultant trainer
Opinion is divided over whether joined, cursive (‘from the line’) writing should be introduced in Reception, but many schools teach this successfully. This session will look at the practicalities of this approach to teaching handwriting, including;

Pre-handwriting provision – appropriate activities to support young children’s physical development for handwriting;
Identifying a school style and supporting displays and resources;
Planning the introduction of letter formation and joining across Reception and KS1, linked to phonics and spelling teaching;
The direct teaching of cursive handwriting – session planning, activities;

Provision for left-handers and children requiring additional support.
