Year One - Activities for 4th May - 22nd May

WRITING

We have put together some information to help you support your child with writing activities during the school closure. In school we focus on a different genre each half-term but you can choose anything that inspires your child (or you) from the following genres:

  •        recounts
  •        instructions
  •        information texts
  •        character descriptions
  •        stories

or you might just want help to support with sentence writing – there’s information about that too!

When children are writing it is really important that they understand: 

  •        the purpose/reason for writing
  •        the audience it is intended for
  •        the appropriate language choices for both purpose and audience.

There are Powerpoints for each genre to show: 

  •        what needs to be included in terms of structure and language choices
  •        examples of writing from Foundation Stage to Year 2. These reflect the range of writing we might expect within each year group – you can show them to your child and let them choose what they think they could manage to achieve independently or with your support.
  •        ideas to create your own versions

Mrs Parkinson would love to see any examples of fabulous writing.  If you can photograph/scan it and email it to deputy@johnhampdenwendover.co.uk she will send back a Good Learning Star.

HAPPY WRITING!
