In Reception, we use the Teach Handwriting Scheme. This programme incorporates activities to develop core strength and good posture. In order to be good writers we need to have a strong body and hands. At Stoneyholme, we have adopted the cursive handwriting style.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage, we take part in funky fingers and dough gym. These are a series of fun activities to a short piece of music to build upper body strength and hand control. These activities help prepare us to write.
