In Year 3, your child will start developing fluent handwriting skills, making their writing more consistent and easier to read. They will practise:

  • writing neatly and legibly with letters that are all a similar size
  • joining some letters
  • deciding which letters to join and which letters not to join
  • keeping their writing lines horizontal and keeping the space between lines parallel and consistent
  • keeping the downstrokes of their writing upright and parallel
  • making sure that descenders of one line do not touch the ascenders of the line below.
