We have embedded Exciting Writing in KS1 to raise the attainment of our writing.
We give the children lots of stimuli before they write. They are reminded to think about what important things they need to remember to add to their writing and have prompts around the classroom to aid this.
The children have their work marked by the teacher. One part is highlighted in pink (tickled pink) to show the child that part is really good. The teacher then highlights a part in green that the child can develop.
You can help your child at home by encouraging them to talk about things before they write. “ If children can’t say it, they can’t write it”.
