I created these resources to add to my 'Star Writer' display board. One is a prompt telling children that the next Star Writer could be them and the other asks children if they can earn a pen license. Also on this display, I have two gold frames which I put the work of the Star Writers in. I also hang a plastic wallet full of pen licenses on this display so that the children can see them. This helps to bring handwriting to the forefront of their minds.
Connectives display posters, which I find incredibly useful for all year groups, especially during DIRT activities (I get the pupils to 'upgrade' their connectives). Common spelling error display also included in this pack. The third resource is a literacy map which I laminate and leave on the student's desks and I refer to this when we discuss writing up paragraphs etc.
