What is Talk for Writing?

Talk for Writing is an engaging teaching framework developed by Pie Corbett, supported by Julia Strong. It is powerful because it is based on the principles of how children learn. It enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally, before reading and analysing it, and then writing their own version.

Below is an outline of the Talk For Writing texts that children will work with as a basis for developing oral retelling and then writing from Reception to Year 2. This document can be downloaded below.
