*Parents* The length your child writes will depend upon their own individual abilities and skills. Some children might want to write one sentence or two, some children might be very motivated and wish to write more. I am NOT expecting to see pages and pages of writing. A couple of simple sentences is fine. Let your child choose which parts they write. They might write something along the lines of: 'Goldilocks went in the Bear's house. She ate the porridge. She ran away'. or 'The porridge was too hot. The bears went for a walk. Goldilocks fell asleep! The bears came back.' Please remember that words do not have to spelt correctly. Encourage your child to sound the words out and write the sounds they can hear. For example, for the word 'bear', your child might write 'ber', or for 'porridge' they might write 'porij'. This is fine and is what I expect to see, words do not have to be spelt correctly, however you may wish to show them the correct spelling alongside.
