Have you considered how writing progresses across your Key Stage, School, or Teaching Alliance? Would you like the opportunity for your entire staff to be able to discuss assessment in writing, using the same starting point?
We offer Whole School Writing Days which involve two characters from Time Capsule Education coming to school to work with ALL your children. You could use one of these days just to celebrate stories and writing, but you can also use them for so much more.
These days are an excellent stimulus for both KS1 & 2 and provide every pupil with the same writing task to complete, enabling you to moderate their writing right across the school or even a cluster of schools.
A Whole School Writing Day includes interactive sessions looking closely at the story, the history and reality. Each year group has an appropriate English session introducing the story and writing task.We also provide a variety of activities, enabling teachers to continue the theme throughout the day.
The following day all the children have the same task to write which can then be marked, assessed and used by your school in any way you see fit, to improve your teaching and assessment of writing. A cluster of schools could use this for a cross school training session.
