Talk For Writing Program


T4W at Bletchley Park

At Bletchley Park students across all year levels are taught writing using Talk for Writing. It is a program that was developed in the UK by Pie Corbett and has benefits for children across all ranges of abilities and backgrounds.

T4W allows students to orally learn the language needed for a particular topic or text, before reading it and recreating it in their own writing. It focuses on high level vocabulary and is also very hands on and interactive. Talk for Writing is a very engaging way of learning to write different text types. Teachers work in teams to create highly motivating units of work, often with some fun hooks!
