At our assembly, the PP – Year6 classes show cased the whole school Writing Program. This was a dynamic display of how we implement the writing program in our classes. Talk for Writing is an approach to teaching writing that encompasses a three-stage pedagogy: ‘imitation’ (where students learn to recite texts, to identify transferrable ideas and structures), ‘innovation’ (where students use these ideas and structures to construct new versions with their teachers), and ‘invention’ (where teachers help students to create original texts independently). These tasks aim to improve writing ability by giving students an understanding of the structure and elements of written language. All classes presented the first stage of the process – the ‘Imitation’ phase.
