Writing and Spelling

These are the tricky words that year 1 children need to learn to spell. They are words that cannot be sounded out using phonics so will need lots of practise!

Retell your favourite story!

Can you pick your favourite story and write sentences to retell it.

Clever writers will remember to use:

  • capital letters
  • full stops
  • finger spaces
  • adjectives

Don't forget to say your sentence before you write it and check it afterwards!

Read the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. What happened in the story? What characters can you remember? Can you use any adjectives to describe the beanstalk and the giant? 


Once you have read the story, look at the powerpoint slides and have a go at retelling the story, using the pictures and the checklist provided. 


Happy writing!
