Handwriting Workshop

Yellowbird Education has joined up with Magic Link to bring this fantastic handwriting course to Fulham.

The Magic Link programme changes writing from messy and illegible to neat and flowing. This programme teaches joined-up, cursive writing in 30 simple steps. Writing becomes more enjoyable and self-confidence increases with the Magic Link method.

The way in which a person writes can affect every aspect of life, regardless of age. Neat handwriting can determine success in examinations, develop self-confidence, improve thinking skills, create a positive first impression on job applications – the list is endless.

For primary school children, 6 years upwards. It's never too late to improve your joined-up, cursive handwriting.

How the session works

We believe in making lessons both fun and functional. We focus on being friendly, caring and supportive, always aiming to adopt a positive approach. The lessons are highly structured and children are taught the Magic Link 30-step programme so they can achieve neat, flowing, joined-up handwriting. 

There are 10 to 12 lessons to complete. Sessions involve direct work as well as demonstrations on follow-up exercises at home. Homework, 5-10 min per day, is set as regular practise is important in speeding up and achieving goals.  

Children will be taught in groups with a maximum of 8 students.

Parents will be encouraged to reinforce exercises at home in order to achieve maximum potential as quickly as possible. Story writing strategies and comprehension tasks are given once the pupil has reached step 30, which is the final step. This will reinforce writing skills and focus on speed, spelling, presentation and the transfer of writing skills into other situations.

Suitable for children aged 6 and up.

Transformational!

"Magic Link Handwriting has absolutely transformed my children’s handwriting. The programme is exceptional; easy to follow and methodical. I have seen outstanding progress in the legibility of my pupils’ writing and their confidence continues to grow as the programme develops. I love the way it ties spelling patterns and word families into each step and I would recommend this to any teacher of any age. Thank you for developing a programme which has unlocked my children’s ability to get their ideas on the page in an easy and speedy way."

The impact is amazing.

"I was overjoyed to see the smile on James’ face and his confidence grow. The impact is amazing as he has gone from being reluctant to write, to readily picking up a pencil to write following your programme this evening. He did not have that fear or low self esteem. I am astonished at the unbelievable difference you have made and James knows he has achieved, as he can see the difference. The way you teach is so much easier for children to understand and to be able to follow, which boosts their confidence and encourages them to take the next step."

This program has worked fantastically.

"For years our son suffered with poor handwriting, and looking back, his school didn’t know how to deal with it. He recently moved to secondary school and he was becoming more anxious, concerned that teachers/examiners wouldn’t be able to read his work. The Magic Link handwriting system has completely transformed his handwriting. Starting with the basics of how to properly hold a pencil/pen (our son is left handed) all the way through to how to produce neat, joined-up writing, this program has worked fantastically for us."
