My plan for literacy this week....

Discussion in 'Primary' started by lucy1986, May 5, 2012.

  1. I am only at school 3 days this week due to bank hol and inset on fri.

    I am being observed on Thurs-
    I am currently trying to boost the writing levels in my class.
    Does this sound ok?
    Day 1- Concentrating on setting description, uplevelling a piece of setting description writing and practising writing their own description.

    Day 2- Concentrating on character description, uplevelling a piece of character description setting and practising writing their own character description.

    Day 3- (observation day)
    Look at a level 3 story starter that describes a setting and introduction to a character- as a class uplevel and say what can be done to make it better.
    Watch a short 30sec video clip which shows a story start. Children to make a bank of WOW words to use in their writing.
    Demonstrate how to start their description through guided write.
    From using their skills from the previous 2 days children are to write their own story starter and continue their stories?

    Does that sound ok?
    I am grateful for any advice!

    That's a lot to do in three days. Concentrate on the main area to improve and that you know you can show improvement in within those three days.

    What age are we talking about here?

    I think it sounds fine, but for the obs, I'd maybe do the WOW words first so they can use them in the uplevelling activity.

    I think I would just get them to write the starter and then assess each other's with some SC created with them after the uplevelling or guided writing activity. Then if there is time they could up-level their own work.
