Talk for Writing Resources

Pie Corbett’s groundbreaking Talk for Writing approach has been successfully used by thousands of schools to teach writing creatively in an engaging way that motivates children. The Talk for Writing approach builds children’s confidence and linguistic ability enabling them to craft their own writing. Designed for busy teachers, Talk for Writing books will help transform children’s writing and attainment across the curriculum.

SPELD NSW offers training in the Talk for Writing program through our Professional Learning Program.

Talk for Writing Textbooks Jumpstart Books

Jumpstart! Books by Pie Corbett (Talk for Writing) contain imaginative ‘quick-fire’ ideas that could be used as creative warm-ups and starters or developed into lessons. There are over 100 provocative and thought-provoking games and activities, intended to ‘jumpstart’ storytelling, reading and writing in any Key Stage 1, 2 or 3 classroom.
Practical, easy-to-do and vastly entertaining, ‘Jumpstarts’ will appeal to busy teachers in any primary classroom.

Talk for Writing – Writing Models

Writing Models aims to help teachers cover every sort of writing type they need including visual and multimodal texts; fine tune lessons by following key teaching points for each model; and deliver the new literacy units to pupils of varying ability using different versions of the same model.

Each book in the series gives you: a bank of easy-to-use, photocopiable models for writing covering poetry, fiction and non-fiction for each year group; key teaching points for each model; simpler and harder examples for differentiation. Teachers who want to cut lesson planning time should welcome this series.
