Writing is thought to begin prior to formal education and links children in early years to having ideas about writing and what it is. It is thought by some that in order to be able to write effectively a child must read, hear and say it first. it is from this that they will be able to form the words and create texts from the ideas in their head. children can then use this to move onto creating their texts whether that is with help from the teacher or not. Some children may require the teacher to help them through shared or guided writing. The response teachers give to children’s writing can be crucial to the development of that child. The wrong response could see the child’s engagement with writing drop and the effort they put in decreased. By supporting each individual in the best way for them it will allow everyone to reach their full potential in writing and not see it as a chore or hard task they have to do in school.
