• Writing depends on fluent, legible and, eventually, speedy handwriting.
• Pupils’ writing during year 1 will generally develop at a slower pace than their reading. This is because they need to develop the physical skill needed for handwriting.

Pupils should be taught to:
• begin to form lower-case letters in the correct direction, starting and finishing in the right place
• form capital letters
• understand which letters belong to which handwriting ‘families’ and to practise these.
• Handwriting requires frequent and discrete, direct teaching. Pupils should be able to form letters correctly and confidently.
• Children should be able to form individual letters correctly, so establishing good handwriting habits from the beginning.
