These are the non-negotiables for Year 1 writing:
We have started with the first 3 so far.
1. Capital letters to start a sentence.
2. Full stops to finish a sentence.
3. Finger spaces between each word.
4. Neat writing in pencil.
5. Use your phonics and tricky words.
6. Read your work back and check these 5 things are correct.
Phonics is really important in Year 1.
Phase 3 sounds are taught in Reception
Phase 4 blends are taught in Reception and Year 1 Autumn term.
Phase 5 blends are taught in Year 1 Autumn 2 and Spring terms.
We read lots of words that contain these sounds. It would be lovely if you can practice reading words (real or nonsense) at home!
