Students from Year 1 to Year 3 will use a Handwriting Mat and/or Book to assist them in using correct formation of letters and numbers according to Queensland Cursive Script.
Students in Year 4 – 6 will begin to develop own handwriting style. Teachers will need to impress upon them the need for legibility and consistency, that is, all printing or cursive in the one piece of writing.
At St Peter’s School, we recognise individual differences in students. Teachers will need to make professional judgements when it comes to individual students’ work whose special needs have been identified.
