Sassoon Font

Sassoon font example

Why Sassoon?

We love this easy reading font because it provides a flexible and progressive way of teaching the joining of letters. All of our books in this series use the Sassoon typefaces to teach the structure and movement of basic letter formation. They help to build up adequate letter spacing and train the hand in readiness for joining.

Entry/Lead in Strokes From the Baseline

Morrells Handwriting does not use an entry or leading in stroke from the baseline in any publication due to the increase in evidence that confirms that it is the main cause of illegible handwriting at primary and secondary level.

Further reading: Fully cursive writing in Reception

Handwriting using an entry/lead in stroke is something that the writer should progress to, not start with, once the writer has a mature and confident joined up handwriting style.
