Every week I will upload a plan for the week on the Writing Home Page that includes the Year 1 spelling rule for the week and their 10 spellings, handwriting letters to focus on to help support letter formation and a weekly SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) focus.

There are also many daily writing opportunities: you might decide to write a letter to a friend, a postcard from a faraway place, a recipe for your favourite chocolate cake, a fact-file about a famous explorer, a diary entry or even a poem! I have loved seeing all your amazing writing on our class Facebook page! I have also suggested several writing activities within our History topic.
You can have fun writing for all sorts of reasons. Pobble 365 and Literacy Shed have great pictures, videos and animations which might give you some good ideas for your creative writing. Below are also some other useful links for writing activities.
