Once Upon a Picture

During our recent parent/teacher consultations, many questions were asked regarding how to support writing and creativity at home. This is a fantastic website which uses image prompts to use in the classroom or at home that can be used to teach reading skills, prompt creative writing and more! You might want to take the weekly challenge of choosing one of the images and producing your own piece of creative writing all about the image. Or, click on an image and you will find a series of questions below the image which you can answer in full sentences.

Some parents/carers also asked about handwriting. Please find our cursive lower case letters and cursive alphabet attached for you to practise at home with your child if requested.

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)

We are also having a big focus on our spelling, punctuation and grammar during our weekly sessions to support your children's writing. Some parents also asked about how to best support this area. The booklet below is a really detailed overview of what we will cover and what you might like to practise at home. I appreciate how busy everyone is, so this is completely optional!
