As with any skill, handwriting develops more rapidly with regular practice. Our Year 1-6 children have several sessions each in class and access Letter-join. This is an interactive resource using animations to demonstrate and providing a range of practice activity. If you would like to access the site at home to develop your child's handwriting, please use the link below with the username: ak1554 and password: home.
