Key Stage 1 Writing

6th December 2013

I have had the pleasure of teaching Literacy in Class 1 this week. The theme in Key Stage 1 this half term is journeys particularly journeys through space. So, we read the book 'How to catch a Star' by Oliver Jeffers and we were inspired to write instruction for how to catch an alien.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To help the children success in their writing, Class 1 (and Nursery, Reception and Class2!) love doing the Dough Disco to warm their hands up and strengthen the muscles in their fingers.

 

You can imagine the children's delight this morning to receive this tweet from Shonnette Bason (more commonly known as "The Dough Disco" lady!)

 

 

The quality of independent, child initiated writing was stunning - well done Class 1!

I am very impressed with the writing. It has clear steps and is very neat. Well done!

Dear Class 1 - I like your response to the question you were asked.
*Well done for giving a reason using 'because' and ...
*Well done for using your phonics to try to spell all those words.

Fantastic writing Year1. I love the story 'How to Catch a Star'. Have you read 'Seven Ways to Catch the Moon'? It is one of my favourite stories and it has beautiful pictures too!

Wonderful,

I remember how to catch a star. It seems more fitting these days to catch an alien.

But do they exist?

What does that class think?
