Whichever fonts you choose to teach our Handwriting Scheme uses exactly the same approach.

The Route timetables differ depending on which fonts you introduce and when joining takes place. We would always recommend Route D, as it gets children joining their handwriting far sooner and frees their short term memory to focus on the topics you are teaching. Route D also supports SEN as children only have to learn one font.

Our Scheme includes the timetables for all four Routes and so if you change your approach in future years it is still valid. Also, if you want to change the whole school handwriting font at the same time, you can use one of the Routes to help with the transition.

1. Teach a single continuous cursive font style

2. Then joining the letters.
