  • Understand the importance of clear presentation in order to communicate meaning
  • Take pride in the presentation of work, developing handwriting with a sense of enjoyment and achievement
  • Be supported in developing correct spelling quickly through a multisensory approach to handwriting
  • Be able to write quickly to aid expressing themselves creatively and imaginatively across the curriculum and for a range of purposes
