Inspiring Writing KS1
This training day offers guidance on how to develop inclusive literacy provision and key routines for writing in order to support children as developing writers in Key Stage 1. It will strengthen their knowledge of how to support children at the early stages of writing to explore a range of purposeful writing opportunities across genres. Teachers will learn how a high quality text can develop and extend children's vocabulary and give context and audience for writing, as well as opportunities to explore phonics and grammar in context.
All teachers will receive a high quality children's text and associated teaching sequence of detailed planning ideas to support the immediate implementation of the ideas from the day, inspiring a range of writing outcomes in their own classrooms.
The course will focus on the following key areas:
- What is writing? Why do we write?
- The reader in the writer– learning from the research
- An environment that supports and inspires a wide range of writing
- An authentic writing process, exemplified through a teaching sequence

"Learning to write begins - whatever the learner’s age with seeing oneself as a writer, doing the things writers do, and thinking the way writers think. Teachers have a crucial role to play here... "Smith, F (1994:180)
