Morning. I'm having difficulty with the children in my Year 2 class who don't seem to be writing at length. We have done quite a few pieces of written work and even the children who are high ability are very reluctant to write more than a few paragraphs. They are great when we discuss and share ideas, but when they go off to write independently, they just don't seem to get it down on paper! A few children will come back to me after writing only a couple of sentences and tell me that they have finished. Am I being too harsh with my expectations? I had Year 2 last year and in comparison, they seemed to be able to write more at this point in the year! Have anyone got any advice? Thanks.
