Follow up to new writing programme

After a week of it I am pleasantly suprised at the results & the hugely improved engagement levels. It is clear that a number of the students have had limited exposure to ‘comics’ and are unclear on the idea of using pictures to convey additional information to the limited text included there.

I am also thinking that the group working ‘in books’ should be my focus group, despite them being of mixed abilities and having different individual foci. I will trial this next week and then cement my decision during week 3.

There is one student who was so motivated by these writing sessions that it was repeatedly talked about at home!

Of consideration is a cross-school moderation session which all students will need to be familiar with the traditional narrative written form.
