Penpals for Handwriting Year 4 Practice Book by Gill Budgell, Kate Ruttle

Penpals for Handwriting is a complete handwriting scheme for 3-11 year olds. The Practice Books provide specific handwriting focused practice - either introducing or practising letters, joins or key concepts such as size and proportion. They are designed to support independent practice in the classroom, following a whole-class teaching session. Each page corresponds to the units within the Teacher's Books and includes opportunities for: Finger and pencil tracing, writing letters or joins; Writing phrases or sentences; Pattern practice; Self-assessment check. In Year 4, we move on from letter formation and joins to look at more technical aspects such as letter height and formation.
