There’s lots of talk in the Highland Literacy Group about writing and how to develop it so with a few weeks of school under our belts, what are we all doing to give our classes the skills they need to be better writers? In the near future, we plan to offer workshops on writing and how to engage children in the process and we’d love to see you there. Keep checking back to find out how to sign up!

There’s a lot of talk at the moment about ‘Big Writing’ and many schools out there are already working with the Ros Wilson materials.  Our Highland Literacy Group are keen to know what you think and if you know of any other good writing resources that might be of interest to others.  We’re keen to take a look at the 6 traits+1 materials (see the images above) and see what these have to offer.  We’ll let you know!
