2. REHEARSE

This lesson allows the children to write a plan for an independent piece of writing.

 

4. WRITE

The children are given time to write their independent piece.

 

 

 

5. REVIEW

This session will focus on reviewing and editing the children’s final piece of writing. This may be completed through self and peer assessment and will be modelled by the teacher.
