National Writing Day 207

Writing matters.

Being able to write well will help students succeed at school, in the workplace and in everyday life. National Literacy Trust research shows that the more a child enjoys writing, the more often they will write outside school, the greater variety of writing formats they will try and the better at writing they will become. Writing helps children communicate their thoughts, process their emotions and spark their imaginations!
National Writing Day is a collaborative initiative between First Story and partner arts and literacy organisations across the UK. It is supported by Old Possum’s Practical Trust and Arts Council England.

“The aim of ‘View from my Window’ was to inspire my Year 8 students to produce a piece of writing in response to the view from the classroom window and then to share on social media on 21st June for the first ever National Writing Day.”
