Module 5 - Year 4

Module 5 focuses on using handwriting practice to support other subjects in the curriculum and, at the same time, builds on fluency and consistency.

Learners will continue to build on producing fluent, consistent and legible handwriting through the regular practice offered in this module’s lessons.

By the end of this module, children should be well prepared to aim for the handwriting quality, speed and stamina required in upper KS2.

Module 6 - Year 5

Module 6 continues to build on combining fluent handwriting with other subjects across the curriculum.
