The expectation for letter formation changes as our children progress through school. In Foundation 2, children work on forming letters without leads in or lead outs, concentrating on starting and finishing in the correct place.

In Year 1 there is a transition from forming letters without lead ins or lead outs to forming them with lead ins and lead outs. By the end of Year 1, children should be forming all their letters with lead ins and lead outs.

During Year 2, children continue to work on their letter formation with lead ins and lead outs. When children are forming their letters correctly in relation to each other and the line, they will begin to work on joining their writing.
