Talk for Writing has been the most successful whole school initiative we have undertaken at Warren Road. Standards have risen in all year groups, especially in areas of ‘Greater Depth’, where written outcomes are of an extremely high attainment. In addition, writing for pleasure has become a feature of the school, with children making the most of opportunities both in and out of lessons, as well as at home, to develop their key skills and their creativity. Visitors to the school will find themselves immersed in lessons where vocabulary is championed and celebrated; grammar, punctuation and spelling is contextualised and used with confidence; and content is rich and engaging.
- An overview of the TfW process and its impact on raising standards.
- An Immersion in classrooms to see TfW being taught throughout the school.
- A book look to see the written outcomes over time.
- A question and answer session with teachers, children and the TfW lead.
