The programmes of study for writing at key stages 1 and 2 are constructed similarly to those for reading:

  • transcription (spelling and handwriting)
  • composition (articulating ideas and structuring them in speech and writing)


Activities to support your child at home

  • Handwriting practice - There are fun activities to develop and support different physical (gross and fine motor skills) and skill based elements required in developing a good handwriting style and are suitable for all ages and abilities - look at this website for ideas.
  • Spellings - children to put spellings in sentences, this will help with understanding the word and basic sentence structure.
  • Creative writing - using visuals at home for children to write a story. Write a diary about their day.
