Handwriting at John Betts
Each year, children across KS1 and KS2 have the opportunity to win their pen licence. This is awarded to children who consistently show neat and joined handwriting in all of their books. Class Teachers will monitor and guide each child on this journey and when they think they are ready, a child can go and show Miss Mair their books.
We follow the Nelson Handwriting scheme and as part of morning skills sessions, children get to practise forming their letters correctly.
Attached are examples of the high expectations we expect from the children across the school, in order for them to be awarded their pen licence.
