Handwriting is a key literacy skill that needs to be taught actively through frequent, discrete lessons. The Penpals scheme will help you to do this with DVD-ROMs for whole-class sessions, pupil practice books and write-in workbooks with  GPS contexts. Comprehensive and easy-to-use teacher’s books support you with unit-by-unit lesson plans, clear links to the corresponding practice books and workbooks with suggestions for group and independent work and guidance on common errors and what to do about them.

The Penpals philosophy is that developing the necessary fine and gross motor skills in readiness for handwriting is vital to setting children on the right path – and that warming up for handwriting is equally important for older children. That’s why each interactive DVD-ROM in the series comes complete with Penpals Gym – a series of age appropriate fine and gross motor skill exercises to start lessons off.

And because we think learning to write should be fun, we’ve developed a range of classroom posters and a wall frieze to bring colour to the classroom along with pen licence certificates and business cards to celebrate handwriting achievements.
