Handwriting Lesson Planners: Modules 1 to 7
The Lesson Planners can be downloaded by subscribing schools by logging into a Classroom account and choosing the 'Info' button.
There are 7 modules which cover EYFS through to year 6.
See sample pages > >
Module 1 covers pre-cursive patterns and continuous cursive, lower case letters with or without lead-in lines.
At the end of this module children should be able to form and join all lowercase letters.
Module 4 contains 60 lessons to improve legibility, consistency and quality of handwriting. It is targeted at Year 3 children in lower KS2 where pupils should be using joined handwriting throughout their independent writing.
It is designed to improve quality of handwriting through resources which link handwriting to other topics.
Module 5 focuses on using handwriting practice to support other subjects in the curriculum and, at the same time, builds on fluency and consistency.
Learners will continue to build on producing legible handwriting through the regular practice offered in this module’s lessons.
Module 6 continues to build on combining fluent handwriting with other subjects across the curriculum.
By the end of this module, children should be producing cursive writing automatically, enabling them to focus on the content of their work rather than the process of writing.
The aim of Module 7 is to ensure that handwriting is neatly presented and clear in readiness for KS2 SATs and is the expected standard of handwriting for Year 6.
Learners will consolidate the stamina and skills required to write at length, with accurate spelling and punctuation. They will develop more of a personal handwriting style as they write with automaticity and will learn to write at different speeds with different attention to neatness, depending on the task.
Staff can use the Letter-join fonts to create documents in MS Word. The fonts can also be used for the Worksheet Generator, On-line Word Processor and Letter-join's Fun activities.
Note that the cursive worksheets in the Resources section use the fully joined font either with or without a lead-in line.
Letter-join Basic is the font to use with Smart Notebook and Powerpoint.
Letter-join offers a choice of alternative letterforms for the letters f, k, w, x and z. Your choices will be used across all of the resources. These include animations of cursive letters and words with associated worksheets, Fun activities, Worksheet Generator and the Letter-join fonts.
The choice of letterforms will be used across all classroom and pupil accounts.
Note that the worksheets in the Resources section use the fully cursive font either with or without a lead-in line.
