English Writing at St Breward Primary School

 At St Breward Primary School we are passionate about all our children becoming enthusiastic readers and creative writers. We use the Talk for Writing approach across the school to support all children to read and write independently for a range of purposes.

What is Talk for Writing?
Talk for Writing is an innovative approach to teaching writing developed by the literacy specialist and writer Pie Corbett. It uses high quality model texts to introduce the children to different story/text types which they then learn off by heart and scrutinise with a writer’s critical eye.
