Cursive or not?

    I'm preparing some handwritten sentences for an interview activity with mixed ability Y3/4. Should I neatly print or use cursive writing?. Thanks.

    You could use precursive, with lead ins and lead outs. If the school's handwriting policy is on its website, that may help you decide. Best of luck with the interview.

    Why not both? Build up from printed to cursive.

    Use the school handwriting style if you can find it. If not, I'd probably go with a neat, joined cursive for Year 3/4. Good luck with the interview.

    Find out from the school/school website which handwriting scheme they use and prepare your sentences in both cursive and unjoined. I would expect Y3/4 to be using cursive but you can use the unjoined option for any children who have not progressed to cursive.

    Edit... just posted this at the same time as sunshineneeded!
