Pie Corbett's Talk For Writing Suspense Story, 'Adventure at Sandy Cove'

Pie Corbett's Talk For Writing Suspense Story, 'Adventure at Sandy Cove'

As a whole school we are developing Talk For Writing as a strategy for teaching and learning different writing techniques. There are three stages, these resources have been created to support my year 4 class, in the first phase, immersion. They can be adapted to suit any KS2 class. Feel free to adapt and use them in any way you need to for your class. Please let me know if you find this resource useful. Enjoy :)

PETAL Paragraph Learning Mat for Literacy, English and Whole School

PETAL Paragraph Learning Mat for Literacy, English and Whole School

This is a clear and concise learning mat that guides students through how to structure a PETAL paragraph. On two slides, which can be printed in colour and reused as learning mats or given to students to keep, the PETAL structure is explained. One side gives an explanation as to what each letter stands for and what should be included. The second side gives students a range of sentence openers to help them write their response. Also included on the very clear, concise and colourful learning mat are a list of connectives, and a reminder that the PETAL structure does not need to be followed exactly (such as the technique may come just before the evidence).
