Advice on working walls please

Discussion in 'Primary' started by KATIELOU84, Feb 16, 2010.

  1. Want to set up a working wall for litearcy in my year 3 classroom anybody share any good advice on layout etc.
  2. If you leave your email here, I will send you a booklet I created for a school inset on working walls in Literacy. Also have a copy of Lancs layout for working walls which is really helpful.[​IMG]

    clarelh - can I take advantage of that offer too please?! resources@jembo.me.uk Thanks in advance!
  4. I'm year one so my working wall would be very different to yours! One of the junious teachers has a fab working wall though - it has a wizard with a speech bubble saying 'This week we have been doing super maths work'. It has the I can statements transferred on to WALT on a wipe board so it can be easily changed. Then words / number things to help them.

    Working walls seem to be the latest thing, don't they? How many kids actually look at them? In my school, they are for the HT and the LEA person. And yes, they always seem to have a wizard on them, saying "This week we are learning some Magical Maths words...." or "Wizard words to make your writing even more magical....."

    Some teachers seem to spend a lot of time on this, when they could be at home with a bun and The One Show.

  6. I love ours, my class use them all the time and infact we had to extend one of them across two boards as they wanted to use so much. The children will often go up and take off post-its, add things of their own accord. It's just about training them.
    As for a format, there shouldn't really be a set one. Mine changes every piece of writing we do as the children suggest particularly things to go - good sentences, examples of success criteria etc.

    Hi, if its okay I would love a copy of the booklet, I would much rather have an interactive working wall than a display.

    We have APE displayed on our literacy working walls usually with a picture of an ape!!
    Every piece of writing should have an APE
    A - audience e.g. myself, my friends, class 2, my dad etc
    P - purpose e.g. to describe, to entertain, to explain, to persuade, to narrate etc
    E - effects - the features particular to that genre
