Developing composition at Hindhayes - Composition at Hindhayes is driven by the Talk4Writing model. Children are introduced to texts through the mapping of stories, poems and non-fiction and are then taught to orally retell these maps. Children work towards making up stories through oral storytelling and by then changing texts they have been working with and to then independently apply the composition skills they have learn through Talk4Writing units. Children are given rich first hand experiences based on an ethos of developing cultural capital to encourage a want to write and are also provided with opportunities to write for real audiences. Barley Bear, the School’s Writing bear goes home with the best writer of the week after Friday assembly.
