Writing today

The children had a writing workshop today. We started off discussing the the purpose of reflection writing.  They are reflecting on they achieved during learning agreement time and communicating it to the teacher.

They participated in a modelled writing experience of  ‘Today I….’.

Key points we discussed were the placement of the writing on the page, direction and using a downwards stroke. The children had the option of tracing it or copying the sentence starter. Then they illustrated their work (for example painting, construction or maths games) and showed it to the teacher who finished writing the sentence.
