I have found out I have a year 5 class next year. As I am really enthusiastic about starting I wanted to find out from the current class teacher where the childrens strengths lie. All the children are really expressive fluent readers. Only a couple of children with suspected dyslexia need more support, due to visual stress. So I am lucky really. However, the class teacher has noted that many children find writing chiallenging and need more guidance in this area. As an NQT I have had some experience with improving writing but i'm guessing my ideas are pretty standard. To prepare myself, I would like to do some reading to get more ideas to inspire the children. Does anyone have any ideas to improve children's writing or recommend any reading. Sorry if i'm asking something thats pretty obvious, any ideas will be much appreciated. Thanks.
