Guy Fawkes themed: Cursive Alphabet Handwriting Worksheets for 5 - 11 years

Needing to teach children to write clearly formed joined letters?

This resource combines teaching children about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night with letter writing practice.

It uses an award-winning writing font teaching children where to start, which direction to write and where to stop. This is particularly useful for children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and for those who are slow writers.

Teach children the where to start, which direction to write and where to stop for joined writing using Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot as a theme. As well as learning how to join letters each page as a mini quiz where a child must guess the word linked to Guy Fawkes that they have written. This takes away the dullness of letter and number writing. I use it and I know it works

It helps children in Reception, Years 1 to 6, meeting the UK curriculum needs of Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and 2 to develop:

• Letter formations and joins
• Establishing handwriting movement patterns
• Starting and finishing points
• The correct direction to follow

Created by myself, I use occupational therapy techniques to improve a child’s writing throughout the pack by using a developmental process.

You do not need to think of anything as it has been done for you!

Just print out and use. There are 3 pages of worksheets.

Suitable to whole class, small groups and 1 to 1 sessions.

* This is a section of the Handwriting Worksheets for 7 -11 years: Success with Guy Fawkes
