We have been working really hard in class writing simple sentences. Please use the attached picture to help your child to write some sentences. They can do this on the first page of their writing book which was in their Home Learning Pack. Please take a photo of their work and upload it on to Tapestry.
When children are writing, a few things are important at this stage:
An example of a child written sentence. If you read the sentence using phonics you can work out what it says.
I sor a boat on the worter.
The writing expectation at the end of the year for Class 1 is:
Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
Children who reach the exceeding expectation will achieve the above and also:
Children can spell phonically regular words of more than one syllable as well as many irregular but high frequency words. They use key features of narrative in their own writing.
This is what we are working towards.
