How Write Example works

Our aim for every Write Example text is to balance National Curriculum requirements alongside creativity, purpose and enjoyment - creating models of writing which will help children progress along their own writing journey.

Write Example members receive...

National Curriculum linked texts - non-fiction, fiction, and non-narrative fiction

Examples of 12 text types: narrative / chronological report and recount / description / review / non-chronological report (information) / explanation / instruction / biography / autobiography / persuasion / compare and contrast / debate and discussion - in a range of real-life style and plain text formats using an easy-to-read precursive font

Texts written for Years 1-6 with select titles differentiated across more than one year group

A mixture of content taken from the 2014 National Curriculum as well as a range of imaginative titles

Resources which focus on developing children’s text analysis, evaluation and review skills

Because example texts can be used in so many ways - depending on difficulty level, topic, format, text type - we've decided to offer Write Example on a subscription basis so that members can make the most of our ever-growing bank of texts and resources.

Why use example texts?

Learning with example texts can help children build their writing confidence as well as a 'writing tool kit' for life - leading to improved grammar skills, increased creativity, measurable progress and - often - happier writers.

Write Example texts can help children develop as writers by providing...

  • a trusted reference source for applied grammar, punctuation and language.
  • texts which are differentiated - supporting children through their next learning step.
  • a range of writing styles – modelling writing for purpose, pleasure and audience.
  • content to learn from, build upon or be inspired by.
  • texts which model writing for purpose and enjoyment.
  • examples of finished pieces written at a level which the child can aspire to.

'The road to learning by precept is long, but by example is short and effective.' Seneca the Elder
