Nelson Handwriting

Nelson Handwriting – Making Presentation our Focus at Eyrescroft Primary School

At Eyrescroft, presentation is important to us.  Being able to write quickly, comfortably and legibly, so that we can communicate our amazing learning, is a key part in getting ready for life beyond school.

Nelson, Penpals for Handwriting, is the scheme that we teach and learn from, so that every child and every teacher is pushing for the same high expectations consistently across school. From Reception to Year 6, we introduce cursive handwriting in step-by-step stages.

In the Autumn term, Mrs Ward introduced a termly handwriting competition. The winners, one chosen from each class, have their work displayed on our 'Amazing Handwriting' board. 

If you have any questions about handwriting, please speak to your child’s class teacher or ask to see our Literacy Subject Leader.
