Penpals for Handwriting is a complete handwriting scheme for 3?11 year olds. The Year 2 Teacher’s Book provides best-practice guidance on introducing the four types of letter join and supports the use of the Year 2 Penpals for Handwriting Interactive activities. At this stage, children start using some of the diagonal and horizontal joins. They are taught and then practise joins within digraphs and trigraphs. They begin to join through a word in stages and also learn about the break letters. They practise spacing between words. There is an emphasis on correct sizing of lowercase letters, capital letters and digits.
