    Would it be possible to have targets made linking to the Year 2 interim framework?

      Hi Geckley,
      Thank you for commenting. I have put this request through, if we're able to make it then we'll be in touch to let you know! :)

    Do you have a reading version of this for EYFS please?

    • May 22nd

      Hi c1aire84,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      We don't currently appear to have a reading version of this resource available. However, I can certainly ask our resource team if they can make you one if you let me know which targets you would like including.

      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

    This is a fab resource and I would love to use it with my year 1's next year! The only thing: would it be possible to make some of the pictures clearer as to what they mean? Example, the target that is for 'say the sentence' has this written on it which makes it very clear what the target is. However, I find the 'write up to the line', 'letter formation', 'use phonics', 'irregular common words', re-order sentences' and a few others slightly ambiguous. I think that this would mean that it it less accessible to the children as they might not remember what the picture means. I also think that it would be more helpful to TA's and PPA cover teachers who also teach in my class if the target pictures were clearer? I wonder if there is anything you could do? Thanks!

    • Mar 21st

      Thank you! The resource is now perfect!

  • Dec 21st

    It's great to have a resource which can be added to by the Twinkl team so promptly. Thank you for adding my suggestions about writing up to the margin and writing bigger. Great resource - this is going to be well used for my Year 2 targets.

  • Dec 21st

    I'm going to stick them in the front of each child's topic book to remind them of their two writing targets for this term.

  • Nov 13th

    Use them as progress checkers in lesson as i have laminated them and put them on the middle of the tables.

  • Oct 21st

    We would be using this for individual target setting for writting

  • Sep 27th

    Targets to stick onto the children's English books

  • Sep 25th

    writing groups

  • Sep 7th

    Me again. A few other suggestions for targets that would be a great help. Form lower case letters correctly, write capitals and digits of the correct size, use planning to support writing, use new vocabulary, re-read work, spell common exception words, add suffix and use co-ordination. Thanks so much!!

      Thank you for commenting. I'll ask our resource designers to look into this for you right away : )

    • Sep 8th

    • Sep 9th

      Hey there poppy7779,
      There is an editable version of this resource available in the 'Alternative versions' box below the big pink download button for you to to adjust the targets to your own needs - I hope you find it useful!

  • Sep 4th

    Fab resource. Any chance of adding one for using expanded noun phrases? Thanks.

    • Sep 7th

      Hi poppy7779,
      That's a wonderful idea! I'll let our resource creators know about your request :) In the meantime, you might find the editable version useful.

    • Sep 16th

      Hi there poppy7779,
      We have done this for you and sent the new resource in an email, I hope you enjoy using it! It will also be available on the website for download soon.

  • Sep 4th

    Any chance of having visuals for adding suffixes, using the four sentence forms, checking your work and adding suffixes? great resource

    • Sep 4th

      Hi fayyates,
      That's a lovely idea! I'll ask our resource creators about this for you :)

  • Aug 21st

    Going to laminate these and blue tac their targets on. They will go in their English books using a treasury tag so they can be in front of them for every piece of writing. When they meet their target consistently, I will stick it in their book and date it.

  • Aug 18th

    Downloading this resource for the second year running for my year 1 and 2 classes. Now looking for some stamps that we can use alongside these targets for use in books (alternatively we will have lots of cutting out to do!). Maybe this might be something you could branch in to :)

  • Aug 10th

    Thanks for sharing, this will be very useful.

  • Jul 12th

    Hi there. Love this resource. We are using this to help implement the new curriculum in KS1. Any chance of having visuals for adding suffixes, using the four sentence forms, checking your work and adding suffixes?

    • Jul 12th

      Hi fayyates,
      You're very welcome! Thank you for commenting :)

    Nurture group targeted literacy work

  • Mar 27th

    I would love this with both english and maths targets all on one resources. Is this possible?

    • Mar 27th

      Hi there sandyfleurs, thanks for your comment! I have passed this on to our resource designers just now and we will be in touch if we are able to make this for you. :)

  • Mar 25th

    We have started using these in our classroom, they're great! Is it possible to add 'tense', 'homophones' and 'apostrophes'?

    Thank you.

    • Mar 25th

      Hi there misswhittle, thanks for your comment! I have passed your request on to our designers and we will be in touch of we are able to help you out with these additions. :)

    • Jul 30th

    Writing intervention year 2and 3

  • Mar 7th

    Have started using this resource and my kids love it. Only thing is the higher ability writers are wanting to use them too, but the targets are not suitable for them.
    I would like some that have:
    Re-order sentences
    Different sentence starters
    Embedded clauses or drop in information
    Vary punctuation
    Use commas to add effect
    Could you see what you could do...
    Thanks :-)

    • Mar 8th

      Hi NMNEWGT, thank you for you review, I have passed your request on to our design team to have a look into for you. I hope this helps. :)

  • Mar 6th

    great resource. Will use this along with our Girfec sheets.

  • Mar 5th

    This is a fantastic resource, just what I was looking for! I'm going to stick the main sheet in the children's books and for each piece of work highlight their target for their next piece of writing - when I have seen evidence of them using it 3 times, I will cross it off and give them another target. :)

  • Mar 4th

    Hi! this is a great resource. Could I have the alternative tiles version that Rosy asked for?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Mar 4th

      Hey there Mattbernal, thanks for commenting! The main version now includes those extra tokens, so you should be able to download them :) If when you download the resource it doesn't include the extra tokens please clear your cache, refresh your page and download again.

  • Feb 25th

    This resource is really useful. The children are taking ownership of meeting their targets and thinking about next steps! Would it be possible to have some new tiles, to include:
    different openers
    exclamation marks
    question marks
    speech marks
    capital letters for names and start of sentences only

    Thank you so much! Rosy

    • Feb 25th

      Hi there Rosy, thanks for your comment! I have passed this on to our resource designers who will look into making these additions for you. :)

  • Dec 6th

    Hi is it possible to have the pencils with out the squares on please?

    • Dec 7th

    • Nov 19th

  • Oct 23rd

    Hi, Could you send a copy of the editable targets to access on Microsoft word so that we can drag them straight onto the pencil? Thanks

    • Oct 23rd

      Hi there esm1e, thanks for your comment! If you click on the "editable" button below the resource preview you can access the Word version of this resource. :)

  • Aug 29th

    Can I just ask how you would use this resource? Are you supposed to print lots of copies of the targets then physically stick the selected targets onto the pencils? Is there a version where you can do on the computer then print off complete with targets? Thank you! x

    • Aug 29th

      Hi thank you for your comment :)
      We find teachers use them lots of different ways. A lot of teachers do print them out and laminate the targets and pencils and use blu-tac to stick them on. That way you can reuse them and change them for when their targets change. Hope this helps :)

  • Aug 22nd

    This is a fantastic resource. Is there a version where the writing on the pictures is not cursive handwriting?

    • Aug 24th

      HI Laura_08, thank you for your review,I have passed this on to our resource team to have a look at and see what they can do for you. We do also have an editable version of this resource so you can fill in the boxes yourself if that helps? :)

    • Aug 13th

      Hi there Laura_08, thanks for your comment! We now have a version that has the sassoon font. :)

  • Aug 13th

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this resource - I would love to have those little pictures for reading and maths targets too so that each child in my class could have one pencil with a maths, reading and writing target on - is this something that could be considered?

    • Aug 14th

      Hi there hinawski, thanks so much for commenting on this resource. I've had a look and let our resource designers know about your suggestion and if they are able to make this they should email you! :)

    • Mar 17th

      This would be really great for me too. I'm hoping the writing version works so it would be nice to have other versions too!

    • Mar 17th

      Just found them... Sorry!! They weren't on last time I was looking for targets xx

  • Jul 14th

    Hi is there a version of this with only two blank spaces? Thanks
