This highly practical day will explore a range of approaches to the teaching of writing, focusing on the design of teaching sequences which integrate reading, writing and the explicit teaching of grammar. It will suggest ways to build children’s explicit knowledge about language and text, while ensuring that they are developing as confident, independent writers, in a culture which values enjoyment.
