    How many days do you teach writing in a week? Do you look at a text, plan and do the piece of writing in the one day or do you do this over a couple of days?

    Several days, usually. It's a lot to fit into one lesson! Unless it's haikus or something "simple".

    Hard question...Do you mean teach skills that improve writing or ask the children to write?

    The teaching of skills is daily and several times a day in fact. Actually asking them to write ( an extended final piece) would be maybe once a week or so, if that.

    I have year 2 and they do put pencil to paper every day, but not necessarily create a 'piece of writing'.

    Both. I would be interested to hear how teachers improve and teach writing this is an area I want to become more confident in.

    LOLOLOL These are definitely NOT the same thing based on my lesson today! I taught writing, but wouldn't like to say anyone improved!
