When teaching handwriting in UK primary schools we teach the manuscript (print) form of capital letter (upper case) style. All handwritten capital letters of the alphabet sit on the writing line and stretch up to the line above, making them about twice the height and width of lower case letters such as a, e, i, o, u. Capital letters never join the lower case ones.
When teaching handwriting to children, capital letters of the alphabet are quite often taught in groups rather than in alphabetical order. The letter groups comprise letters that use the same, or similar, shape and directional push and pulls of the pencil to form them. For this reason we have grouped the letter animations and worksheets in the same groups that many primary schools will introduce them.
