Teaching paragraphs in Lower KS2
A paragraph is a collection of sentences.
Paragraphs are used in writing to introduce new sections of a story, characters or pieces of information. Because they break text up into easy-to-read sections they help readers to enjoy and make sense of what has been written.
Suggestions to help with writing in paragraphs:
- All the sentences within a paragraph should be about the same person, place, time or topic.
- When the person, place, time or topic changes, you should start a new paragraph.
- Every new paragraph should start on a new line.
