Jack and the Beanstalk - Talk4Writing

At Pencombe CofE Primary, we use Talk4Writing to develop our children’s writing skills starting with the foundation years.
The Talk for Writing approach enables children to read and write independently for a variety of audiences and purposes within different subjects. A key feature is that children internalise the language structures needed to write through ‘talking the text’, as well as close reading. The approach moves from dependence towards independence, with the teacher using shared and guided teaching to develop the ability in children to write creatively and powerfully.
Here is an example of the “imitation stage” where the children in Pippin class are using the model text of Jack and the Beanstalk to internalise the text and deepen their understanding which gives them the valuable toolkit to build on this understanding.
Great work Pippin!
