Every Friday we will be doing a piece of Big Writing. This is an extended piece of writing that will vary in text types each weeks. By doing the Big Write we will be improving our writing stamina as well as focusing on our vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation- or VCOP for short.
Each Monday your child will take home a piece of Talk Homework. It is vital that you look at this with your child. It will explain what the piece of writing will be on the Friday and will include important talking points that you should discuss with your child in order to prepare them for the writing. It is often difficult for the children to think up ideas for writing on the day, so by discussing it for a week prior, they will be able to write to their potential.
Below you will see each weeks talk homework.
