Engaging reluctant Y6 writer in 1-to-1 sessions?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Lilolme, Mar 5, 2011.

  1. Anyone got any good ideas for some 1-1 sessions with a Y6 boy who is pretty disengaged, especially in writing, to get him to improve? I've got 7 of ten sessions left with him - we've talked a lot about writing, and done some descriptive stuff and bits of work on compound sentences, as they were things I knew he was struggling with.

    My background is mainly in KS1, so I'm a bit out of my depth. He's working at 3B.

    Anyone got any good ideas of how best to use my time with him?

  3. Is there a lesson that he does like?
    Find out interests and hobbies...
    Relate writing to these areas for example, if it's football (cliche I know) get him to write a match report and look at some examples in newspapers to get ideas on writing style, vocab etc.


     
  4. Thanks! I had thought about that, but am struggling to find anything he's really interested in! Grrr

    A friend suggested some other ideas, so I'll have a go tomorrow and see what happens! Thanks x
