English & Phonics
The study of English develops children's ability to listen, speak, read and write for a wide range of purposes, including the communication of their ideas, views and feelings.
At Lindens Primary School we follow a handwriting policy, which provides the opportunities for all children to be equipped with the skills to form a fast, efficient and flexible style of handwriting. We are currently moving from a 'continuous cursive' style to a 'cursive' style. This removes the need for our youngest learners to add the 'flick in' or the 'loop through' on descenders (e.g. f, g, j, y), whilst still developing the 'flick out' and preparing them for cursive handwriting later on.
