  13. I can't see any mention of what age u teach, but one of the things which handicaps many young children's writing ability, and quite a few older ones too, is lack of spelling confidence. Tedious though it is, most children have to be taught the 4,000+ common words with one or more irregularly used letters - http://englishspellingproblems.blogspot.co.uk/ . Those words need regular teaching in small doses and revising from time to time, even testing occasionally, in moderation (better done individually, with a computer program than with class tests).

    Some avid readers are able to imprint the irregular spellings on their mind simly by reading copiously, but the majority don't. They need to spend time on learning the mechanics of writing to cope with genres and different styles. It's less fun, but essential for as long as English spelling remains the mess it is.

    You might find it useful to consider the teaching sequence devised by UKLA to think of a unit as a whole - generally over 3 or 4 weeks. Take a look at some examples on emmarogers.org.uk/literacy-planning-texts . That might help to see how everything links together.

    Is this still available? I wonder whether you might save it on resources if you had time and would be so kind. I don't want to post my email address, as it gives away my identity! Not that I have said anything terrible on other forums!
     
  17. We are continuously updating this pack and as such would find it an inconvenience to upload on a regular basis. This being said a lot of the material can be found on the 'talk-for-writing' forum and is free to be used how you wish, alternatively you can send your email to me via private message and I can forward the latest edition of the pack.


     
  18. Done!

    Make sure you join the talk-for-writing group too for loads of free resources, advice, planning, sharing of good practice etc... Make sure you come and contribute your talk-for-writing experiences there too!
