Writing 

We encourage children to write creatively in school using a variety of writerly skills. Throughout each of our writing units, we continuously discuss the purpose and audience and how we can achieve our intended impact upon a reader. 

Pobble 365 - click here to access

Pobble 365 is a brilliant website which provides a writing stimulus every day of the year. Alongside this, each picture has discussion questions, a sentence challenge and sick sentences to improve. For those who are unsure what to write, the website also gives a story starter to help get the children writing. We recommend using the resource in the following ways:

Key Stage 1 

- Create a list using your senses e.g. what can you smell? 

- Write a list of nouns and adjectives from the picture 

- Write 3 sentences about the picture 

Key Stage 2 

- Look at the picture and think about the discussion questions - maybe discuss with someone at home 

- Read the story starter 

- See if you can improve one of the sick sentences 

- Sit quietly for a 45 minute writing session and write about the image

- At the end of the session, read through the writing and edit for spelling, punctuation and word choice (could the language be improved?)
