Pupils should be taught to develop positive attitudes towards and stamina for writing by:

  • Writing narratives about personal experiences and those of others (real and fictional)
  • Writing about real events
  • Writing poetry
  • Writing for different purposes

Consider what they are going to write before beginning by:

  • Planning or saying out loud what they are going to write about
  • Writing down ideas and/or key words, including new vocabulary
  • Encapsulating what they want to say, sentence by sentence

Make simple additions, revisions and corrections to their own writing by:

  • Evaluating their writing with the teacher and other pupils
  • Re-reading to check that their writing makes sense and that verbs to indicate time are used correctly and consistently, including verbs in the continuous form
  • Proof-reading to check for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Read aloud what they have written with appropriate intonation to make the meaning clear

  • Teacher notes, with teaching sequence
  • PowerPoint
  • Writing sheets
  • Pupil success criteria checklist sheet
