Writing

At Ivy Bank we embrace creativity and have successfully implemented a quality text-based curriculum, which we believe inspires our children to become magical writers.

Ivy Bank encourages the children to have a sense of pride in the presentation of their work across the curriculum. Correct letter formation and handwriting joins are taught using the Penpals scheme, which has been endorsed by the National Handwriting Association. Our school handwriting style encourages breaks in joining, therefore we don’t join ‘g,j,y, x and z’.
