· Write lower and upper case letters using the correct sequence of movements, ensuring the correct letter orientation to write on lined paper.

· Tall letters, small letters and ‘tails’ hanging below the line letters. Writing:

· Demonstrate an awareness of key features of narrative in writing, e.g. significant incidents and simple settings.

· Create short, simple texts on paper and on screen which combine words with images (and sounds).
