I joined the Infant School staff for their weekly staff meeting today. They have been working on an ongoing, evidence-based research project which looks into the variables surrounding children’s writing; the positions they write in, when they write, whether exercise has an impact, what they write with, whether their targets improve their writing. This staff meeting was an opportunity to share with each other their findings so far. It was a fascinating meeting where enthusiastic and committed staff shared results, challenged each other and discussed positive impacts. This is all part of a bigger picture to create learning environments that suit all needs and abilities, to consistently raise the standards of writing within the Infant School.
