Writing

From September 2014- July 2016 we took part in the 'Primary Writing Project'. The Education Endowment Fund supported a research and development project into raising standards in writing, using the basic principles of initiatives such as ‘talk for writing’ and ‘grammar for writing’. The project was led by Pie Corbett and John Stannard  and supported by the Talk 4 Writing team of advisors.

Talk for Writing - the key to raising attainment.

Talk for Writing, developed by Pie Corbett supported by Julia Strong, is powerful because it is based on the principles of how children learn.

Talk for Writing enables children to imitate the key language they need for a particular topic orally before they try reading and analysing it. Through fun activities that help them rehearse the tune of the language they need, followed by shared writing to show them how to craft their writing, children are helped to write in the same style.
