Writing Style and Pencil Grip

At Garden International School the children are taught to write in the Sassoon Style. If you are teaching or supporting your children at home with their beginning writing please use this style.
If you are teaching your child to write their name please use a capital at the beginning of their name and use lower case letters for the rest of their name. It is very difficult sometimes for them to change if they have learned a different way such as all capital letters.

The letters should be started from the top of the letter except for the letters e and d which start in the middle.

This is the pencil grip that should be encouraged to help the 

children the best control of their writing skills. Of course some 

children are still developmentally not ready yet to hold their tools 

like this.
