Writing opportunities can be stimulated by stories the class have heard, activities that have been shared or by looking at artefacts and images. The paddling pool writing prompt enables children to write from a visual cue.
First off, children should be encouraged to talk about what they can see in the picture. You may need to expand their vocabularies by naming objects such as the hosepipe and the stool.
You may also want to draw on the prior knowledge of children who have played in a paddling pool, sharing their experiences such as splashing in the water, taking care not to slip as they got in and out and shivering if the water felt chilly.
Encourage children to phrase their observations as sentences and model writing these on the flipchart or whiteboard. Now ask children to write about the picture using the keywords to help them where necessary.
This activity is just one of a selection created by Rachel for her resource pack 6 Inspiring Writing Templates for KS1 and KS2 English which you can download here.
