What is Penpals for Handwriting?

Penpals for Handwriting is a complete handwriting scheme for 3–11 year olds, offering clear progression through five developmental stages. It teaches children a fast and fluent handwriting style to help them achieve their potential in writing.

Penpals uses a combination of DVD-ROMS for whole-class teaching and practice books and write-in workbooks for small group and individual work. 


Five unique developmental phases provide clear progression for children aged 3 to 11.

DVD-ROMs support interactive, direct teaching to the whole class using an interactive whiteboard.

Practice books and workbook provide essential practice and reinforcement.

Sky-writing and lesson warm-ups develop the fine and gross motor skills that are crucial for handwriting.

In Years 5 and 6 basic handwriting issues are revised and speed and fluency improved.
