Treasure House Handwriting is a whole-school programme designed to support children in developing a clear and fluent style of writing. Using precursive and cursive handwriting styles, the programme progresses from introducing the movements and patterns needed to form letters, through to the development of a personal style.
Through the workbook, children explore different contexts in which a well-formed handwriting style plays an important part. They are asked to use both print and joined styles to transform material from a range of curricula and everyday situations for presentation to others. By this stage, children will be developing at least three handwriting styles:
1. A neat, `best form
2. A speedier and sometimes less neat form
3. A clear, well-formed print style
