We're using Wendy Edwards. She does reading into writing. We do a week of writing and on the Fri of that week begin to plan our own version of the text. Then 2nd week do lots of writing from plan and editing then 3rd week back to reading. They also do 1 assessed piece every 2 weeks so they are constantly practising the layout/strucuture of different texts/genres. We only assess the 6 children we're doing APP for in real levelled detail. We also incorporate VCOP and use visual literacy. Our focus is to get the children to write well, WOW words, connectives, creativity and work on punctuation last as if you look closely at SATs mark schemes this is awarded the least marks, apart from handwriting. Anyone know who did or where I can get ideas about the idea that all punctuation has a noise/sound effect??? Hope that makes sense.
