Writing Matters


Writing MattersThis book is the outcome of the combined work of Manchester practitioners at Foundation Stage Network meetings and the city wide 'Let's Write' CPD training. It also draws on the developmental work: 'Writing Opportunities in a Quality learning Environment', by Manchester's Lead Practitioners.

It is designed for all Foundation Stage practitioners but some of the ideas may also be appropriate for practitioners working with Year One children, It supports an integrated learning approach and is a response to practitioners requests for collating the ideas for writing opportunities in all the specific areas/workshops within the learning environment.

There are six ideas for each specific area/workshop. With the exception of Construction and Small World, these include at least one 'talk for writing' idea that is indicated in italics. For Construction and Small World there are examples of how a writing project could develop over an extended period of time. The painting/creative workshop ideas show how the development of fine motor skills could be supported.
