Hi. I've just taken on the role of English coordinator at the 2 form entry primary school where I teach year 6. Currently we don't have a whole school approach to the teaching of drafting and editing work, which is something I think we could/should change: having a consistent approach will mean that children know exactly what drafting and editing looks like and how it is done rather than different teachers doing it 'their own way'. I'm looking for any advice/ideas on successful approaches that people are using. Also, in which year group should this be introduced? I know the NC states year 2 should be proof reading to check for spelling errors so should this be when the basic process is introduced? We are also thinking about scrapping timed extended writes and introducing Publishing books where children will be able to write up and share their final, edited and improved written work from all areas of the curriculum. There have been some concerns that writing work up 'in neat' is a waste of teaching time, especially for KS1 but when work has been edited well, with potentially several changes, additions and corrections (which can make work appear unorganised and messy) then surely the children should have the opportunity to write up the finished article so that other people can understand and enjoy it? Would very much appreciate any advice or feedback.
