It is up to you which activities you would like to have a go at, a few ideas from us are: rainbow writing; pyramid writing; look, cover, write, check and creating sentences however if you need more time to practise by all means - go ahead.

Don't forget to research any unknown words.

We have attached some cursive handwriting pages below as well as the lined paper that you are used to practising on (letters sit on second straight blue line, ascenders to above red, descenders to below red).

Why not recreate our classroom handwriting sessions? Turn the lights down, pop our playlist on, make sure your pencil has been sharpened and that you are sat with both feet facing forwards, your chair is nice and close and both arms are on the table.
