Handwriting - Kinetic Letters

 

We have created this page to share with you some resources you can use at home to support your child with their handwriting.

 

At Netherton, we use a handwriting scheme called Kinetic Letters, and we need parents and carers to help us by working with their children at home, especially if they are forming letters or numbers incorrectly.

 

The easiest way to show you how letters and numbers are formed is through video links and posters, so please use the links below to practise with your child. Make sure they form each letter as shown.
