Writing

To be able to write high quality language, we need to have heard it and used it..

At Great Wilbraham, we use Talk for Writing as the main tool to teach writing from EYFS to Year 6. It is based on the premise that children cannot create writing out of nothing; that a knowledge of language, narrative and sentence structures need to be embedded before children can write confidently and effectively using these tools. Children learn one high quality key text. They then internalise the language and the structure which in turn, become the building blocks for their own writing.

Talk for Writing sits alongside high quality teaching of other aspects of English across the school.
