The workbooks provide opportunities for additional guided practice of the unit’s handwriting focus and link it to a relevant grammar, punctuation or spelling focus to provide meaningful contextualised practice. The disposable two-colour write-in Workbooks are sold in packs of 10.


Offers children the opportunity to consolidate letter formation.

Links to common exception words to reinforce essential learning.
