I have been busy collecting handwriting samples from teachers, showing progression over the course of the year and I am absolutely delighted with the results. The P2s also started this term and have picked it up really quickly.
Siobhan, P7 teacher, Belfast
Super improvement in our handwriting due to Letter-join. Fantastic!
Miss King,
Battyeford Primary
As a private tutor, I teach children of all ages. I have used Letter-join for both Key Stage 1 children who were learning cursive script at school, and Key Stage 2 children who needed to tidy up their handwriting.
Sarah, private tutor
Every since I discovered Letter-join on the BETT stand our Primary teachers have been using it on the smartboard. They are very enthusiastic about the quality and yet simplicity that Letter-join offers.
Michiel, ICT coordinator
Thanks again, can't believe how fast you respond!
Really pleased with the whole package, making life much easier!
Fran, reception teacher, Lancashire
Jack and Daisy have been doing half an hour cursive letter writing practice each evening. We use the Letter-join program . . . which has really encouraged both of them to join in willingly.
Jayne B. - mother to Jack and Daisy
I think it's an amazing resource and the only thing close to the cursive script we use at our school.
Clare, Literacy Co-ordinator, Brighton
Elsie was awarded her handwriting pen today. Five months ago, in her old school, she was the cleverest in her class with the worst handwriting. Since joining the new school, with, I believe the aid of Letter-join and good teaching, she's the second in her class to get the handwriting pen!
Kathi, mum to Year 4 girl, Budleigh Salterton
