The Writing Laundry
Get your pupils to clean up their writing with the Writing Laundry. This visual resource can be displayed in the Foundation Stage to Year 6 classrooms and will make a significant impact on the correct use of each element within each year group.
Writing Laundry provides a pupil friendly view of each year group’s expectations for writing.
The Vocabulary Laundry – lists the words that pupils must spell accurately.
The Punctuation Laundry – outlines the progression of marks that pupils need to acquire.
The Sentence Laundry – the sentence constructions that pupils need to craft in order to guarantee they have a wealth of different structures to apply in their writing.
This product now includes a mark scheme that supports pupils to edit their work.
Pupils have a bank of points to retain for spelling and punctuation but can lose these points when they make errors. The amount of spelling points and punctuation points they lose changes according to year group in relation to National Curriculum requirements. This mark scheme is a downloadable document that outlines the process. These can be photocopied and used as learning mats during editing sessions.
“We needed a fun resource that explicitly showed children the writing requirements from the National Curriculum. The Writing Laundry hanging up on washing lines in classrooms firmly outlines the vocabulary, punctuation and sentence requirements for each year group.”
Rebecca Payne, Headteacher – Boothville Primary School.
This resource enables pupils writing to be clean and ready to be dressed up in more creative and purposeful ways. The Writing Laundry comes in full colour, high gloss card ready to be cut out.
