WORD OF THE DAY: What do we get up to first thing in the morning?
These two videos explain to you the idea behind our morning starter "Word of the Day" as well as showing you the children writing and reading out the sentences they have written. We ALWAYS read out at least half a dozen of the children's sentences, because it gives them real purpose for their writing; "writing is done to inform others". To this same end of giving purpose to writing, I encourage the children to walk around the classroom in writing lessons and look at the work of their classmates. They also ALWAYS edit their work with a writing partner. So a child's writing is always read and commented upon by at least one other person.
