Townville Infants' School

Welcome

Writing progression: Sentences.

Nursery:

 

Children

  • Write some or all of their name.

Reception:

 

Children

  • Write recognisable letters, most of which are correctly formed.
  • Spell words by identifying sounds in them and representing the sounds with a letter or letters.
  • Write simple phrases and sentences that can be read by others.

 

Year 1:

 

Children combine words to make a sentence, joining two sentences using 'and'.

Words are separated using finger spaces with capital letters used to start a sentence and full stops to end.

Sentences are sequenced to form a narrative.

 

Year 2:

 

Children demarcate most sentences with capital letters and full stops with some use of question marks (when required).

Children are able to use co-ordination (and/or/but) and some subordination (when/if/that/because) to join clauses.
