Teachers TV: Primary English - Writing Activities

Three teachers share Great Lesson Ideas to boost pupils' writing skills - and all the resources you need to use these ideas.

The Super Sentence is a good regular KS2 activity which promotes understanding of different ways that sentences can be changed and improved. Next is The Wordscape, which stimulates students in the preparation of writing a description of a setting.

Then Spelling Games shows a variety of simple, fun activities, suitable for Key Stages 1 and 2, to help make spelling lessons more engaging and stimulating.

  • It's excellent! It is guided in a wise way, but also leaves the learners freedom to amend and enrich their writing thus activating their vocabulary and grammar.

    Thanks for sharing! Some great resources. I wouldn't have used capital letters at the beginning of any of the spelling words in the last example though as none of them were proper nouns - could lead to unnecessary confusion for the learners.
