The Big Write

by

Every Wednesday morning students in year 7 will be studying “The Big Write” to build on their literacy skills. Big Writing is the development of the ‘writing voice’ through fast, fun, lively and predominantly oral activities. Students talk the ‘writing voice’ in a dedicated ‘Big Writing’ session & at other points in a week .

Below is an example of a students work, this piece of work was looking at adjectives, describing words.  Students then had to correct any grammar mistakes, spelling mistakes and add punctuation to “build up” their work. By not concentrating on spelling or grammar mistakes at the start it allows ALL students to have a voice and create a good piece of creative writing.
