Why?   How?   Who?

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.
  • differentiated texts - 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
