Year 1 Writing Skills

  • Orally rehearse their sentences before forming them.
  • Capital letters at the start of each new sentence. 
  • Use clear spaces between words.
  • Punctuate their sentence using a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark. 
  • Use their phonics knowledge to help them spell many words in a phonically-plausible way.
  • Extend their sentences by using the conjunctions 'and' and 'because'. 
  • Form their letters correctly.
  • We also encourage the children to read back through their writing

Today we would like your child to:



  • Read to you (twice – once this morning and once this afternoon)


  • Refer to Billy’s Bucket. Explain that this week we will be writing our own story about our own buckets. In your story, how did you end up with your bucket? Did you find it? Did you choose it? Were you given it as a gift? Was it in your garden?
  • Write a sentence about how you came across such an amazing bucket.




  • White Rose – Session 1




  • Practise 5 of your Year 1 spellings.
  • To support your child with their cursive handwriting at home take a look at the 'Letter Join' website. This is the scheme of handwriting that we use at school. The log on details are:
