RAINBOW WRITING / COLOURFUL WRITING
How does raising the grammar subject knowledge of teachers raise standards in children’s writing?
How does raising the profile of grammar across the whole school raise standards in children’s writing?
Children tended to know how to use words and recognised that there were different word classes, but did not have the technical vocabulary for grammar.
We needed a whole school approach to grammar teaching which was introduced in the Foundation Stage and was built on through KS1 and Ks2.
This was a concept which was developed by Bryan Harrison to support Ros Wilson's 'Big Writing' and VCOP.
Rainbow Writing
