Write Size Ltd, home to the world’s first range of age appropriate pencils specially designed to fit children’s hands has been overwhelmed by the success of their most recent writing pencils study undertaken by educational Specialist and Neuro Motor Developmental Therapist, Pete Griffin.
The range of pencils have been developed to scale for children aged two years to 10+ in an attempt to make handwriting less daunting, easier to learn and more enjoyable amongst children as a result. Their shorter and more chunky appearance compared to a standard pencil helps children have better grip and control when writing and the high quality graphite makes the pencils more resistant to breakages, therefore requiring less sharpening for a longer lifespan.
The product which has been commended by the National Handwriting Association, took several years of research to produce the perfect size, diameter and inner core. It has received some very positive results from school sampling programmes and more recently “top marks” from a study with retired Head Teacher, Pete Griffin who has worked in education for over 50 years. He was very keen to put the products to the test with primary school children across the UK and determined the following results:
“I approached Write Size after hearing about the company through local business awards. After spending many years in education as a Head Teacher I was a little cynical and decided to test this new concept. It was amazing to see the difference with the majority of children benefiting by using a ‘Write Size’ pencil compared to a standard classroom pencil, with their accuracy, fluidity and speed significantly improved. Write Size pencils really do make a difference, top marks from me!” Said Pete Griffin.
MD, Ross Williams who developed the concept after watching his own children struggle with pencils that were too cumbersome and not in scale with their tiny hands said “It’s wonderful to get such positive results from this study, this is exactly why we spent years in development with this unique writing system to ensure we produced the perfect writing tool to help children learn to write more easily and quickly.
These results also reflect the feedback from schools and parents across the UK who are already using Write Size products to enhance their children’s performance.
The Write Size team prides itself on creating stationery that is innovative and inspiring and our mission is very simple, we want to improve the learning experience for all children by giving them the best tools for the job.”
