A school in Lowestoft has improved the quality of writing at Key Stage 2 through a focus on speaking and listening, and modelling the conventions of writing.
Teachers found that 'taking the time to look in detail at the structure of a range of adventure stories has really impacted on the sequencing of the pupils’ work. There is now far more logical sequencing of ideas with openings and closing clearly signalled to the reader. The importance given to talk, drama and oral rehearsal of sentences has extended the children’s vocabulary as well as raising their confidence during group activities.'
