Start-Bee Handwriting: All Joined Up! for Schools

For pupils who have worked through the Start-Bee Patterns, Lowercase Letter Formation, Uppercase Letter Formation and are now ready for joining all the letters together effortless.

 

The All Joined Up! Exercises show the correct joining points for specific letters and boost confidence to ensure learners develop the muscle memory to effortlessly and naturally join their letters correctly.  

 

This Programme is always delivered AFTER the Patterns, Lowercase and then Uppercase Letters Programmes as they underpin the learner's handwriting skills with the correct foundations to writing well.  

 

The Handwriting Match Fit Assessment has shown us that a high percentage of children struggle to learn to write with the cursive font from the get go.  The reasons for this are complex and your Literacy Lead can learn why this is from the Handwriting Assessment Inset Training. 

 

First, deliver the strong foundations to ensure the correct entry and exit strokes for every letter are secure before moving learners up to the All Joined-Up! Programme.  

 

Most learners will automatically join their letters once they have learned the correct entry and exit strokes (Patterns, Lowercase and Uppercase) and we use the All Joined-Up! Programme to ensure the learning of the correct joins are embedded confidently.
