Structured intervention support to improve students’ writing

Fix it writing has been designed to support English teachers, non-specialist teachers and teaching assistants in identifying and ‘fixing’ problems in students’ writing. It's ideal for targeted support and intervention sessions at KS2 and KS3.

The photocopiable, downloadable teacher handbook provides a structured sequence of 26 teaching sessions and resources, with detailed guidance on how to deliver these sessions to develop students' core skills. It includes chapters on: writing and punctuating sentences; planning, organising and linking ideas and paragraphs and choosing effective words.

The photocopiable student workbook includes all the classroom activities and resources to accompany the teacher handbook, enabling students to improve and build on their core writing skills.

This sample is from the Fix it writing - student workbook:

Ending sentences

Sentences sometimes end with exclamation marks or question marks. Exclamations are used at the end of sentences to show a strong emotion such as surprise, horror or excitement, or which include a command or order. Question marks are used at the end of sentences which ask a question.

There are four sentences below. End each of these with a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

  1. How much did the ice-cream cost

  2. More and more people arrived

  3. Look out

  4. What an enormous queue

Your own sentences

Now write out some of your own sentences about a fairground. Practise writing a range of sentences, so that you include questions and exclamations too. Use exclamation marks, question marks and full stops to end the sentences.

What have you learned?

Write down two important things you have learned in this session.

Say how you will use that learning before the next session.

I am using this resource as remediation for a dyslexic Year 9 student who understands the theory of grammar but whose creative writing is not yet revealing what he knows. Self-esteem is beginning to falter and so I am adapting this resource to build his confidence and with repeated chunks of practice, I am aiming for greater automaticity. The pages in this resource are interesting, varied and joyful making the resource easy to work with.
