Writing progression: Sentences.

Foundation Stage:



  • 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.
