This classroom display pack is perfect for supporting Year 1 children as they learn to write simple sentences.
Two sets of materials are included:
- Set 1 reminds pupils to use a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop, and to read their final sentence to check that it makes sense.
- Set 2 builds upon this and includes the information above plus reminders to form letters correctly and use ‘and’ to extend sentences.
Each set could be used at different stages as sentence writing progresses throughout Y1. It also enables you to easily differentiate by giving pupils resources appropriate for their stage of development in writing. Both sets include:
- Poster – Writing Sentences Rules
To be used as a visual prompt to remind pupils what is needed to write a sentence correctly. It could be displayed on the wall or used as a mat at pupils’ desks.
- Poster display set
Each skill is separated, to create a larger display for the classroom working wall.
- Sentence writing bookmark
These are designed to be stuck along the top of pages in books, so children can refer to them when writing.
