Click on the link below, scoll down until you come to the Continuous Cursive Letter - top letter joins section. 


Watch each animation in turn and then carefully copy the letter join 10 times. When you have done this, repeat with the next letter join  - watch the animation and copy 10 times. Continue until you have completed all the top e letter joins.  Write down 4 words which contain each of the letter joins.


Next, choose one word from each section and write a sentence for each.. Try and think of interesting sentences which begin in a different way and contain a range of punctuation. Try and make interesting vocabulary choices to engage, and ensure your handwriting is well presented

Wednesday 27th January

Here is your poem to copy out this week in your neatest handwriting. The poem is written by Pie Corbett and I have chosen this as I know how inspired you were by Pie Corbett's Teaching Live sessions. Perhaps, you could even have a go at writing a poem in a similar style.

Friday 22nd January

Spelling test day. Please ask a parent to test you on your spellings today - it would be great to hear how well you got on!
