Stage 1 - Imitate
The children learn to retell a text from memory.
They familiarise themselves with the language patterns through role play and drawing activities.
They finish the sequence by re-writing the text.

Stage 2 - Innovate
The structure and language patterns from the first text remain.
The children change key features, such as the characters in a story or the subject of a set of instructions.
They complete the stage by writing the new version.
Stage 3 - Independent Application
This is the final stage in the sequence.
The children apply the skills learned in Stages 1 and 2 to an independent piece of writing.
All previous vocabulary is displayed in the classroom to support the writing.
