For those children who struggle with fine motor skills, a device such as an I-pad or laptop may be used in the classroom when they are producing an extended piece of assessed writing.  They are still encouraged, however to practise their handwriting and letter formation skills daily.

Handwriting is taught using the ‘Letterjoin’ on line programme which guides teachers to ensure each year group’s expectations are met in this vital skill.
