Being A Writer

Being A Writer is an innovative training programme that has been developed and extended this year to bring together Literacy Leads and Lead Practitioners of writing to:

  • Explore principles which underpin the effective teaching and assessment of writing
  • Review current practice within schools
  • Share models of best practice in teaching grammar within a writing process
  • Identify next steps to develop a clear, consistent and engaging approach to the teaching and assessment of writing across schools

We have devised a varied programme of sessions that will afford participants the opportunity to discuss and critically evaluate practice with other professionals and look closely at a writing process through the lens of the child. There is also a Modelled Lesson programme where teachers are invited to observe lessons across a range of age phases and topic areas to see best practice from across the Federation.

Modelled lessons are taught by Literacy Leads and Lead Practitioners from across our schools.
