Kinetic Letters

Handwriting using the Kinetic Letters programme at The Bliss Charity School

We strive to ensure all our pupils achieve:

  • Fluent, legible and speedy handwriting that can be performed automatically, so that the attention of the brain is on the content of the writing.
  • The stamina and skills to write at length, with accurate spelling and punctuation.
  • Competence in transcription (spelling and handwriting) and composition.
  • The ability to write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.
  • A comfortable and efficient pencil hold and working position.

We do this by using the Kinetic Letters handwriting programme.  Teaching of the programme commences in Reception where children are taught the correct pencil hold:

lh hold     rh hold

 

Children are taught all of the Kinetic Letter families, upper case letter formation and number formation:

window cleaner family     Jumper family     Abracadabra

Fisher family     Slider family

Special squirter

Capitals     Capitals 2

Numbers

 

 

Once chilren have mastered the letter families and are starting and finishing letters in the correct place, they will be taught to join their writing following the Kinetic Letters joining programme.
