Talk4Writing in Primary

14 September 2018

Following on from our Talk4Writing training in June, we have been putting Talk4Writing into action across Primary.

In Year 2 we have been learning the story of the 'Mango who spoke'. First we got a special delivery of a talking mango and this week we had a follow up visit from Farmer Ted who answered the children’s questions about how it felt to meet a talking mango. We have been using drama to help us remember the sequence of events and puppets to help us retell the story.

In Year 4 the students have been learning the story of 'Where the Wild Things are'. Story maps have been used as they play a large part in the process of internalising the language of a story before students begin to innovate and create their own. In Year 6 the Talk4Writing washing line helps to make the learning visible.
