Wt/E1.1

Wt/E1.1 use written words and phrases to record or present information
(a) understand that, writing is a way of representing language in a more permanent form than speech
(b) understand that writing can be structured in different ways for different contexts and audiences, e.g. in sentences, in a list
(c) understand that writing can be used to generate, plan and organise ideas

The first page of this resource will help students to identify consonants and vowels, which then leads onto CVC word building and reading skills.

Pages 2 & 3 have two short texts that my students enjoyed very much. These help students practise reading and identifying the structure of CVC words. They will then be able to answer simple comprehension questions.

You may want to cut up the passages and set up a jigsaw reading activity. Can be used with lower level students.
