KS1 children, here are some writing tasks for you to complete.


Year 1, please complete the pack below (you will need to scroll down as the Maths tasks are presented first).

Year 2, please complete the setting descriptions below.

Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Make your writing as interesting as you can; include a range of adjectives and conjunctions to further extend your sentences. 




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.
