UKLA Viewpoints: Writing

Writers are ‘moved’ to teach, persuade or influence, entertain, paint with words, reflect, to make a record or get something done. Writing, then, is our thoughts, feelings, imaginings, beliefs, values and actions – our lives.

In order to develop as writers, children need:

  • teachers who are writers
  • experience of a wide range of texts
  • opportunities to talk about what they write before, during and after writing
  • experience of writing for a range of purposes.

You can download the full UKLA Viewpoint on writing to the right of this page.
