Talk for Writing 
 
Since September 2018 we have implemented Talk for Writing across all year groups, as our approach to the teaching of writing. We are already seeing it have a great impact on the progress in children's books between their cold and hot tasks. Sentence structure is now being used for effect, children have a greater understanding of genre features and the vocabulary being chosen would blow your mind!  Here are some videos of TFW in action at our school. Ask your child to perform some Oral story telling to you tonight!
