Literacy Inset – Editing Writing at KS1 with Sarah Cook

This Literacy workshop is provided by Sarah Cook from the highly acclaimed Somerset Literacy Network.

This workshop will explore ways in which children in KS1 can fulfil the expectations in the National Curriculum to

Year 1: re-reading what they have written to check that it makes sense; discuss what they have written with the teacher or other pupils; read aloud their writing clearly enough to be heard by their peers and the teacher.

Year 2: make simple additions, revisions and corrections to their own writing by:

  • evaluating their writing with the teacher and other pupils
  • re-reading to check that their writing makes sense and that verbs to indicate time are used correctly and consistently, including verbs in the continuous form
  • proof-reading to check for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation [for example, ends of sentences punctuated correctly]

The guidelines in the DfE Clarification letter published in March 2016 will be explored and Case Studies from SLN Primary schools will be shared.
