Homework
 
As the children are developing their continuous cursive handwriting skills, you may want to encourage your child to practise at home. The following website shows the continuous cursive joins we are using in CWCS and tips on pencil grip as well as sitting and paper position. Being able to write effectively in cursive script is an important objective in the National Curriculum. If you have any questions about cursive handwriting, please do not hesitate to come and ask us.
