Talk for Writing 

 

At Brettenham we know that at the heart of reading, writing and storytelling first comes speaking. We use the Talk for Writing model to encourage our children to learn and retell stories using actions and ambitious language. We believe that if a child can retell a story well, they will develop into a fantastic story writer! This journey begins in EYFS when the children learn and retell traditional stories using actions for retention. We use story maps, sentence prompts and modelled writing to help show good sentence structure. As this develops, children write these well known stories for themselves, by adjusting the narrative and characters to create their own stories! This is such an enjoyable way to learn and the children thoroughly enjoy it!
