So I have gone back into a classroom after three years out as a numeracy specialist and I have been put into a year six class. I am really struggling with literacy. Their writing I feel is really poor and they still write with sentences that don't make sense. Last week we did a big write diary and they turned itv into a story instead. I have gone to mark their newspapers today and it is horrific. Has anyone any advice on dealing with these problems as I have tried and to no avail. How much do you model? How do you look at sentence structure and how it is fit for purpose. Totally stressing.
