Manor Farm Academy
The journey to becoming a writer is complex and fascinating. Getting the youngest children to a point where they can confidently express their ideas through writing is one of the most rewarding parts of teaching in early years – and one of the most challenging.
This series of sessions will enable you to examine the writing journey, looking at the importance of communication and language, experiences, cultural capital and vocabulary, using research to support understanding.
We will examine, ‘What makes a writer,’ and look carefully at the implications for your setting. We will look at strategies to enable children in the lowest 20% and those with English as an additional language to develop their knowledge and skills, thereby accelerating progress.
There will be an opportunity to work with the exemplification materials on session three and engage in agreement trialling.
