Handwriting

At Tiptoe School we learn cursive handwriting which means we learn to do lead ins and lead outs on all our lower case letters. We learn to write this way because it will help us to join our letters when we are ready to do so. 

 

 

In Year 2 we can earn a pen license when we can write using the correct letter formation!
