Talk for Writing Story Maps & Model Texts

Story maps and model texts help children to retell their class text. They are used in our Talk for Writing lessons. We use model texts to teach pupils how to use new vocabulary and sentence structures effectively, how to structure their writing and how to use their writing toolkits and techniques for effect. The more that children internalise the vocabulary and sentence structures from our model texts, the better equipped they are for creating their own stories. 

Key Texts & Story Spine for Year 6

The document below shows you the key texts that Year 6 will be using for their Talk for Writing units this year, as well as the supplementary reading texts that they will use as class readers. The class readers are set for all year groups and this makes our Horsenden Story Spine.
