Talk for Writing is an approach we have adopted to ignite a love of literature from an early age and to ensure that the children at Matthew Arnold Primary School make the best progress they can in writing.

 

“Imagine a school where pupils enjoy, discuss and work with a core of books. These ‘essential reads’ would be a store of classics, creating a living library inside a child’s mind. This is the Reading Spine… a common bank of stories that bind the community together”  (Pie Corbett)

 

The children develop their love of storytelling and writing by becoming familiar with key texts. By using puppets, actions and verbal retelling Talk for Writing embeds storytelling structures and rich and varied storytelling language into the children’s memory and makes story writing easier.

 

Exposure to high-quality stories and the consistent nature of the method gives each child a structure to work within when penning their own stories. The solid foundations of the structural elements of storytelling that Talk for Writing develop allow the children to become more confident in incorporating their own ideas, exciting.
