Happy Handwriting is a whole-school handwriting course to support every child to become a confident, fluent writer. Edited by Dr Jane Medwell, a handwriting expert with a wealth of experience in languages, English and early literacy, Happy Handwriting is perfect for supporting specialists and non-specialists to teach handwriting with confidence.


Focus on teaching handwriting as a discrete subject with direct, consistent handwriting activities and write-in workbooks that encourage children to be proud of how their writing is improving. Make the most of your lessons with supporting readymade PowerPoint slides with letter formation animations included and additional practice opportunities for pupils who are struggling with their legibility or confidence.

For Foundation to Year 6


Features


  • Free access to our simple, modern font for use on your computer to help you prepare materials or displays for your class. As well as cursive and non-cursive variations, you’ll also get our Dot and Arrow fonts, which use glyphs to emulate handwriting strokes.

  • Teacher guides and practice books that provide a structured, cumulative programme of skills teaching

  • Fully downloadable files and additional resources such as presentation slides with letter formation animations to support front-of-class and small group teaching


Staff training and support


Happy Handwriting has been carefully designed to support both specialist and non-specialist teachers. Each teacher’s guide contains a glossary of terms, guidance on the curriculum and on writing a school handwriting policy, and notes on writing position, choice of medium, grip and hand preference.

Schofield & Sims WriteWell is a complete course designed to guide children from their first steps in mark-making towards the development of secure, fluent and comfortable joined handwriting that can be adapted for a range of purposes and tasks. Supporting the statutory requirements for handwriting, it provides a consistent basis for teaching and learning this complex skill from Reception to Year 6.


WriteWell follows a developmental model that splits learning into four discrete stages based on the National Handwriting Association’s ‘S Factors for Success’: (1) Shape, (2) Space, size and sitting on the line, (3) Stringing together and slant, (4) Speed and style


Children begin the programme when they are developmentally ready and progress at their own pace as their handwriting skills flourish. ‘Ready to Go’ assessments and intervention resources help the teacher to decide whether or not each child is ready to move on to the next stage.

For Reception to Year 6


Features


  • x1 Teacher’s Handbook containing guidance on the key issues at each level of development, as well as comprehensive letter formation and joining charts, and assessment and intervention resources.

  • x11 pupil workbooks providing varied activities that not only practise each letter and join but also reinforce learning across the curriculum

  • a range of free online resources, including animations for each letter and join


Staff Training & Support


Phone support is available from our knowledgeable in-house advisers. However, the WriteWell Teacher’s Handbook has been carefully designed to explain the process of teaching handwriting as simply and as accessibly as possible. The teaching notes contain clear guidance on everything from posture to pencil grip and base lines to break letters, as well as including detailed formation charts for every letter and join. A comprehensive introduction describes how to use the programme in your school, including advice on developing a handwriting policy, supporting left-handers and assessment and intervention.


Cost


Teacher’s Handbook £25.00; pupil books £3.50 each (£3.00 for 10 or more copies of each book).
