Handwriting at home (Reception to Year 2/3)
Letter and number formation
We have created this page to share with you some resources you can use at home. .
At St James's we use a handwriting scheme called Kinetic letters. Your child will be bringing a Kinetic letters pack home and we need parents and carers to help us by working with their children at home, especially if they are forming letters or numbers incorrectly.
The easiest way to show you how letters and numbers are formed is through video links and posters, so please use the links below to practise with your child. Make sure they form each letter as shown.
