Year 1 Writing The Way Back Home Day 1

Tuesday: Building a sentence

Today we are going to do some simple sentences so that everyone can succeed in their writing.  Have a go using the sheet, or if you don't have a printer, put the PDF on screen and zoom in on the word bank words.


Children do not have to use the word bank words, they are there if they are needed.


This work should be attempted independently with plenty of praise and support when they have finished.  Please leave any mistakes for now.

I wonder who can come up with a better sentence than mine?

Year 1: Build a sentence way back home



I was really impressed with your work yesterday.  Look at all of your amazing sentences.

I've commented on each of them. Well done.


Today we are going to have a go at keeping a sentence in our head.  

I've been teaching my own 5 Year old today and I'm so snoozy I forgot to mention 2 tricky(ish) spellings.  It's ok to look these 2 words up if you are stuck.

Once you have held this sentence can you redraft it?


Can you write it neater? Can you make it better?

Can you describe the boy too?

Thursday Writing Planning

So now we are going to plan out work!

If you don’t have a printer then please draw these 4 things from the story








then think of 3 words to describe them and write that next to them. 

think draw a picture of a different place the boy could crash on. Will it be the hot sun? Or a cold Neptune?


Then can you describe that place. 

When you have finished your plan check you can read it. You will need it tomorrow!
