Handwriting Help

In Year 3, you should develop fluent handwriting skills, making your writing more consistent and easier to read. Read on to discover the National Curriculum expectations for handwriting in Year 3, and ways to practise your handwriting at home.

 

Handwriting Expectations:

  • use the diagonal and horizontal strokes that are needed to join letters.
  • increase the legibility, consistency and quality of your handwriting (for example, by ensuring that the downstrokes of letters are parallel and equidistant; that lines of writing are spaced sufficiently so that the ascenders and descenders of letters do not touch).
