This initiative has, until now, passed me by! I've been looking at some of the ideas on the Strategy website, and am now trying to work out how to implement some of them in my Y3/4 group. How do others get children to be Magpies & collect good words for their writing? My children have dictionaries for spellings they need, and I did think about adding Magpie words to these lists, but that's not very special! I'm wondering if they would be better categorising them by word class (verbs, adjectives, etc).... Any suggestions or ideas?
