Key Stage Resources:
Foundation resources include animated pre-cursive patterns with practice screens and worksheets as well as a ‘virtual sand tray’ for practising letters at a large scale.
KS1 pupils will learn to write using continuous cursive handwriting by watching and practising all of the joins on screen and by using worksheets.
KS2 pupils will prepare for secondary school by using the dictation exercises to help them gain confidence with ‘speedy’ writing and will learn the correct way to fill in forms and label diagrams.
There is an initial £100 registration fee that is only payable for the first year and there is a sliding scale for the cost per classroom per annum, from £35 per class for 1 to 3 classes to £17.50 per class for 16+ classes.
