The Write Stuff – Transforming the Teaching of Writing


The Write Stuff, created by Jane Considine, is a system that will sharpen the teaching and learning of writing within your classroom. This best-selling book outlines a clear and systemic approach to the teaching of writing, providing a step-by-step framework to convert struggling writers into successful writers.

“The impact that ‘The Write Stuff’ approach has had within my own classroom is incredible. The high quality modelling enables the children to succeed when they come to do their own independent writing and they love to see their own work regularly celebrated on the wall in the Sentence Stacking. ‘The Write Stuff’ has totally revolutionised my current practice and produced some really incredible writing that the children are proud of. Who doesn’t want a vocabulary rich classroom where children are excited to write?” Helen Buckingham, Year 2 Teacher

If you are looking to convert the struggling writers in your classroom into successful writers, then The Write Stuff by Jane Considine is the book you need.

The Write Stuff is based on two guiding principles; teaching sequences that slide between experience days and sentence stacking lessons. With modelling at the heart of them, the sentence stacking lessons are broken into bite-sized chunks and taught under the structural framework of The Writing Rainbow. Teachers prepare children for writing by modelling the ideas, grammar or techniques of writing.

Key benefits of The Write Stuff:

  • Support for teachers so that they have a deeper and more flexible knowledge of sentence structure.
  • Pupils who understand how to apply sentence scaffolds to their independent writing as they develop their expertise.
  • Standards improve because many worked examples are provided over the year that extend understanding through a wide range of genres and non-fiction text types.
  • Children have a clear view of what high quality writing looks like and their learning is structured clearly and misconceptions dealt with.
  • Pupils know how to improve their writing and make it more focussed and actionable feedback is provided to guide their learning.
