The Intent, implementation and Impact of our Curriculum for English- Handwriting:
At Beechview Academy, we encourage children to take responsibility and pride in their work through our handwriting expectations; improving the quality of presentation.
We teach explicit handwriting skills across the school to ensure children are writing legibly and we follow the continuous cursive handwriting style.
Handwriting sessions take place at least two times a week and will focus on patterns, letter formation, spacing, letter height, joins and continuous cursive letter sets, capitals, numerals and punctuation.
Children leave Beechview Academy being able to write legibly; with the majority of them using cursive handwriting as their style. Children leave with writing stamina and are able to produce high quality presentations.
