Here is short guide to Big Writing,we hope it helps.
Big Writing is a relatively 'new' way of teaching writing, it focuses on 4 main aspects of the writing process and gives the children the skills to improve their own writing through self assessment, sharing of work and fun, learning games throughout writing sessions.
The children are taught to think about their writing in four particular ways Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation. They then use these aspects to help them improve. It must be remembered however that this process is to do with one aspect of their writing. We are also committed to improving the quality of the content and how they use writing to express themselves. The elements below will vary according to the age group of the children. For the younger children much of the work will be oral.
