Year 1 writingIn Year 1 your child will learn to write simple stories on their own. They will learn to plan their writing by talking, or by drawing pictures. Their writing will be for different purposes that cover several areas of the curriculum. For example, they may write about caring for a pet (science) or a report on a visit to a factory (technology). They will be able to read and talk about what they have written.
If your child has met the Writing Standard after one year at school they'll be able to:
- plan what they want to write by talking, drawing or perhaps writing word ideas
- write about their experiences and ideas and give information
- link their story to everyday experiences
- use many words they know from their reading
