Handwriting Letter

25th January 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,

At Hook Infant School we are trying to help the children perfect their letter formation in their handwriting. To help with this we are introducing handwriting rewards which will be given out in celebration assemblies. The children will need to reach certain milestones in their handwriting to achieve the rewards.

  • Copper award – form all letters in their name correctly
  • Bronze award – form all letters of the alphabet correctly
  • Silver award – form all letters on the line in the correct place
  • Gold award – for clear and consistent letter sizing
  • Platinum award – for consistently neat handwriting and beginning to join letters in words

When children reach the platinum award, they will be given a special handwriting pencil.

To help your child achieve this, you could practise handwriting with them at home and check they are forming their letters correctly when writing. Attached to this letter is a copy of the school handwriting rhymes, letter families and a practise booklet to help your child with this.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to being able to give out some of our new handwriting certificates,

Miss Tamblin
