Teach cursive handwriting easily and effectively. The programme is firmly rooted in best practice and handwriting research. It sets out the most effective way to run a handwriting session and then provides everything the teacher needs to implement the approach.
Video recordings of letters, letter joins, letter groups, short words and the 100 most common words means the teacher is free to circulate and provide individual help, feedback and support.
When pupils have mastered a particular letter / letter join / letter group, the teacher can move on, enabling teachers to set the pace for their class and ensure mastery is achieved.
It is easy for teachers to add in additional practice for individuals or small groups. Sections can be revisited at any time with the whole class or with small groups. The programme is also perfect for supporting teaching assistants in delivering handwriting interventions, and home access to develop handwriting can also be provided for older pupils. Support your teachers and pupils to develop handwriting automaticity.

JOIN ME ON A QUEST TO ERADICATE HANDWRITING ISSUES.
The programme starts with theory so that the hearts and minds of teachers, TAs and school leaders can be convinced of why it is essential to teach handwriting systematically and commit time, money and resources to achieving automaticity.
The main programme includes:
Videos showing live modelling of handwriting for every letter of the alphabet.
Videos showing live modelling of handwriting short words that contain the target letter.
Videos of live modelling of handwriting the 100 most common words.
Extra videos for q, j, z, u, n, k (which are the most tricky letters for pupils to master).
As the programme is based on the Debbie Hepplewhite font, also provided are cue cards for all letters and various cue card mats and the opportunity to purchase the font so that teachers can use this in activities such as spelling lists.
(Please note that the school will need to purchase the Debbie Hepplewhite scheme of work which is about £20 to cover access to all the cue cards.)

The programme includes a CPD section.
Rather than the teacher being tied up with live modelling - the video clips can be played on the classroom screen. Free up the teacher to circulate and support.
To ensure the transfer of good handwriting from 'practice sessions' to 'everyday automaticity' it is important to practice writing short words.
There are no workbooks, but there are printables should you need them.
There are no workbooks. Pupils write directly onto paper or a handwriting book. You can download and print worksheets linked to the videos for extra support for pupils or as extra practice.
Whilst some schemes may promote jazzy pictures and cartoons, this focuses on efficient and effective practice without the frills. Whilst teachers often worry handwriting can be boring, in fact many pupils find the quiet purposeful task almost like a mindfulness session and have enjoyed the chance just to focus on one process rather than the complexities of some of the tasks they face during the day!
"Visiting teachers looking in on classrooms have asked if the pupils are having a test because it is so quiet and pupils are concentrating so hard."
