Handwriting guides for teachers

Handwriting lessons in school

Even in this digital age, every 4 -18 year old should be able to write legibly, fluently and at a reasonable speed to ensure exam success.

From day one our mission statement has been ‘it’s never too late’ to rescue handwriting regardless of age or ability.

The Morrells Handwriting resources have a proven track record for being successfully used in primary and secondary schools and at home by 4 – 18 year old students across the globe.

In the 23 years that I have worked in the mainstream and special needs sector training children in handwriting techniques, this has to be the most logical system I have encountered. It doesn’t detract or confuse the writer; it’s fun and relates to everyone!
Marilyn Tinkler, British Council Ambassador NW

This new series of handwriting resources will help your school teach handwriting to the requirements of the new National Curriculum. It is designed to create life-long fluent and legible writers using the Morrells Handwriting Bounce Technique and can be easily slotted into the English lesson, saving you time and money. Handwriting is relevant throughout all school subjects and Morrells Handwriting can be used by children, teenagers and adults.

Each workbook offers rapid improvements for beginners, ESOL and EAL learners, as well as students with dyspraxia and dyslexia and those seeking a more mature cursive handwriting.
