‘Be The Best You Can Be’


Talk for writing for all year groups

'Talk for Writing' is a strategy we use in school to support writing. It encourages children to think and talk about what they write before they compose. The units below, one for each year group will guide you through a series of sessions to support writing. They have been specifically designed for use at home and are broken down into small steps.

The year 6,7 and 8 unit will challenge even the best writers. The first units have been provided for free by the authors.

A message from the unit authors

Dear Parent/Carer
Please donate to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity if you use these resources.
Welcome to this second batch of 8 home-schooling unit booklets produced by Talk for Writing. We are pleased you seemed to love the first batch and this time we want to raise money for this vital charity.
We think the best way to do this is for people to contribute on a voluntary basis:
• £2 per unit - Parents using a unit with their child, if you can afford to do so
These are recommendations only. If you are able to donate more, please do!
