At Hazlewood we have embraced the ‘Talk for Writing’ approach to the teaching of literacy. This approach teaches the skills of writing which is drawn from their reading. Children use ‘story maps’ to become familiar with the language rhythms and patterns of different genres. It helps the children to develop their ideas and plan and prepare writing. To make informed choices about grammar vocabulary and text structure and helps them to understand how to reflect upon, edit and improve their own writing. We are also part of ‘The Power Of Reading Project’ run by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education’ (CLPE). This project places high quality children’s literature at the heart of the English Curriculum and enriches teaching and learning through training in and promotion of effective and creative approaches. As with talk for writing it recognises the integral relationship between engaging in reading and attainment in writing.
