2do activities – I will try and keep up to date with marking these. The English and Maths games should be played daily. Please think carefully about any written work you complete on Purple Mash and ensure that it has all features of a year 1 or year 2 writer.
Year 1 writer – Capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in the correct places. Ascenders and descenders (please look at handwriting link). Use wow vocabulary, conjunctions such as and, but, or, when, if, that, because to join sentences.
Year 2 writer – Capital letters, question marks, finger spaces and full stops in the correct places. Ascenders and descenders (please look at handwriting link). Use wow vocabulary, conjunctions such as and, but, or, when, if, that, because to join sentences. More able children should use suffixes such as ment, ness, ful, ly and less.
