I teach Year 1. We have 30 minute phonics sessions scheduled a couple of times a week (and 20 mins on the other days) so as a result those sessions become almost more of a grammar session - I do the phonics input then get the kids to write sentences using the new words. I've worked really hard with them this term on capitals and full stops, reading to check it makes sense etc etc.and most of them (over 20/30) can now do this completely independently. Fabulous! However, when I ask them to do writing in any other subject, they instantly go back to writing in one long sentence with no punctuation, not thinking about spelling etc etc. Extremely frustrating. I've got visual reminders to help them which have worked brilliantly in phonics but it's like they think that those skills are just for phonics or something. They also often mispell words which I KNOW they can spell correctly because they did earlier in the week in phonics. How do I get them to transfer the skills they are showing in phonics sessions, in to their writing?
