Handwriting

At Driffield Junior School, we use cursive handwriting. This is a style of writing where letters are joined together in a flowing manner. This allows children to be able to write more fluently and it makes it easier to write at speed. During handwriting practice, children will be taught how to write, form and join letters accurately and will be reminded and encouraged to do this in all lessons.

This is an example of how cursive letters are formed and written. This poster is displayed in all classrooms for children to use if they forget how a letter should be formed.

Below you can see some of the fantastic handwriting from some of our pupils at DJS in years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
