Use Plazoom’s Sentence Builder Game to develop Y1 pupils’ formation of simple sentences and develop and improve their understanding of how sentences are structured.
They can use the Who?, What? and Where? cards to form simple sentences, rehearsing them orally before writing.
This sentence game for KS1 can be played as a whole class as a fun English lesson starter activity or as the main focus of the lesson. It could also be used as a writing intervention in KS1 or KS2 for pupils who may need support to form sentences.
