Hi all, Hope you're having a good term. We're currently working towards improving our writing and have spent a long time making sure that the children can produce a good amount of high quality writing when doing longer pieces. At the start of the year, the children were incredibly reluctant writers as an entire class. Now I'm slightly concerned about the shorter writing task and how to teach the children to meet the same expectations but in shorter pieces of writing, as often after 5-10 minutes some of them are still sitting and claiming they are thinking/planning. Any advice please?
