Sample text

One issue worth mentioning here is the comparison between the amount of fiction and non-fiction read to children. Traditionally there has been far more of the former than the latter and this should be considered when choosing texts to read aloud. Underpinning the ideas in this book is the simple but powerful notion that children need to read and read and read – especially if we want them to develop as writers. Sounds and words and sentences This section is about the ways in which we teach the sounds and words and sentences which make up the English language: ➢ Word level: phonics, spelling and vocabulary.

Readers respond to the same text in different ways at different times: readers make analogies between their own lives, current issues and those represented in texts, using the text as a fictional commentary on their own experience. (Department of Education and Science 1990) The study of how a literary text works begins, then, with an exploration of how readers responded to it (‘it was scary’). Such work naturally leads into an examination of how the writer managed to produce such a response (the scary setting, the scary vocabulary, the use of short, sharp sentences for tension .

The reading/writing connection lies at the heart of our work in classrooms through its consideration of the ways in which what we read influences what we write. The reading/writing connection is about writing like a reader. And in order to do so, writers have to have read the text type they are trying to write or have had it read to them. First we consider the reading/writing connection in terms of very young children and the key idea they learn that writing is not speech written down. Those who have been read to begin to ‘write like readers’ in the writing they compose orally.
