From today, we are asking every child to send in a sample of writing weekly. Check out today’s home learning blog post for more information about how to submit your child’s work.
Writing at home can be tricky so every week until the summer holidays, Miss Walton will be uploading a selection of creative writing prompts. Your child can then choose an idea and begin to write! Your child should aim to write for no longer than 10 minutes.
The creative writing prompts are not compulsory so please don’t use them if you don’t need them. I’ve designed them to be used as an additional resource to support writing at home.
Here’s this week’s ideas:
Below, you will find some links to support materials for writing.

In class, we talk about our ideas. Then we think of our sentence, say our sentence aloud, write our sentence and re-read our sentence. We use a green pen to start our sentence and a red pen to stop our sentence. This acts as a great prompt for using the correct punctuation.
