Letter Formation Videos

In Reception, we teach children how to form their letters in the pre-cursive handwriting style. Pre-cursive handwriting is the transition between printing letters and joining all letters in fully cursive handwriting. 

In pre-cursive handwriting, children practise forming their letters with lead-ins and lead-outs, which then ensures the letters start and finish in the correct place ready for when they begin joining their letters later on.

Below you will find demonstrations of how to correctly form all letters from a-z. Remember, each letter begins on the line and capital letters DO NOT have lead ins.

We hope you find them useful smiley
