Year 2 Handwriting

This section is for children to complete as part of their basic skills learning. 

These activities will help your child to practise the skills needed to improve their handwriting. They are in the order we would teach and practise them in class.

Handwriting – First 100 HFW Activity Sheets

Number formation

Letter formation

Capital and lower case

During the Autumn term your child will begin to learn how to join their writing. We would like to ensure they are consistent with letter sizes first so please work on the formation sheets above first. 

We would then like them to have a good understanding of the difference in letter sizes between capital letters and lower case letters. Please use the sheet above or these ones here:

We then move on to introducing the joins. We have provided a few examples for you to practise with your child and will update this section as the children move through the joins.
