Talk for Writing


There are several books that we use regularly and find very supportive for developing talk for writing, all written by Pie Corbett.
Storymaking (Jumpstart) ,Jumpstart Poetry, The Bumper Book of Story Telling into Writing at Key Stage 1 and The Bumper Book of Storytelling into Writing: Key Stage 2  We have also written a free to download booklet which describes the TfW strategies that we use regularly.
Talk for writing is made up of the following components but its starting point is what good writers do

We can offer support for groups of schools, individual schools and teachers in Talk for Writing.  To contact us about this please ring 01392 287361.
