Beaumont Lodge Primary School teaches writing using The Write Stuff approach. The Write Stuff is based on two guiding principles; teaching sequences that slide between experience days and sentence stacking lessons. With modelling at the heart of them, the sentence stacking lessons are broken into bite-sized chunks and taught under the structural framework of The Writing Rainbow. Teachers prepare children for writing by modelling the ideas, grammar or techniques of writing.
Key aspects of The Write Stuff system include:
🌟 The Write Stuff builds pupils’ confidence with sentence structure.
🌟 The approach widens the repertoire of writing options for pupils.
🌟 Pupils gain and understanding of the ‘whole’ piece that they are writing.
🌟 Organisation of their ideas and cohesion between them is strengthened.
