Developing early writing

Material to help teachers and practitioners teach writing in the Reception year of the Foundation Stage and through Key Stage 1. The booklet addresses generic issues on the teaching of writing with young children and also addresses each year group individually. Topics covered include fiction and poetry, non-fiction, developing handwriting and developing spelling. This document can be found on a CD-ROM but is currently being amended in response to the recommendations of the Rose Report on early reading and the revision of the literacy framework.
