Am intrigued to know everyone's top tips for improving writing in Year 1. My children are all very different (as I'm sure all yours are too), but I'm lacking imagination in ideas to get them from saying their sentence, sounding out each word, trying to remember full-stops, finger spaces and capital letters to independently writing more than one sentence consistently (without being begged by me!) and with increasing accuracy. Am thinking of having a bit of a competition (with themselves) going on - getting team-points for each 'sentence ingredient' they remember - just hoping that it doesn't get too complicated! Any more top tips.......?
