John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’



We practice our handwriting daily in addition to our Monday morning work. There is some information below to help support correct sitting position, pencil grip and some ideas for things to do at home. There are some sheets which can be printed if you have that facility or simply used as a guide to what to practice.


We are still working on letter formation and orientation this week. We have included suggestions for writing two of the same letter with a join to reinforce letter formation and introduce some simple joins. Look carefully at the examples in the pictures.

Have a look at the video to make sure you are sitting correctly for your handwriting.

Here is our link to the finger gym exercises.

On the pictures below you can see some letter joins to have ago at today. I will put the same activity on each day so please try to do just 1 page of handwriting each day. You can see more if you are very keen!
