Modelled Writing

You may have read in our recent newsletters that one of our whole-school priorities for developing our 'learning experience approach' at Fishbourne is to give greater opportunity for the children to experience modelled writing.

The purpose of modelled writing is that the children get an insight into what goes through an authors mind as they create a piece of writing. This week in school, we are celebrating the progress we have made on this and sharing the good practice. Here's an example from Koala Class where the children were editing, improving and redrafting a piece of writing. This approach is being used throughout the school, from Reception class all the way through to Year Six. There is a sense of apprenticeship and collaboration in every classroom across the school and levels of engagement in writing are really high.
