How to Handwrite Numbers

0    1    2    3    4    5    6    7    8    9

Numbers are formed using the same directional pushes and pulls of the pencil as those needed to form letters.

There are only a few variations of number font styles used in UK schools in relation to written and mathematical work. However as with letters there is a standardized method to forming each number.

We have provided practice worksheets that can be printed off, to support your child as they start to learn how to correctly handwrite numbers.
