Talk 4 Writing

Talk 4 Writing is 'an engaging teaching framework developed by Pie Corbett, supported by Julia Strong. It is powerful because it is based on the principles of how children learn. It enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally, before reading and analysing it, and then writing their own version'In KS1 1 we use Talk 4 Writing strategies to develop the children's literacy skills. We create text maps to embed and recall stories and texts. We then use these strategies to further develop our writing skills. Talk 4 Writing are providing units of work for your children to use whilst staying safe at home. There are no expectations to complete all, or any of the activities, they are just a guide and there if you need them :)
