Unlike traditional wall displays, working walls are interactive and can be used to record, visualise and assist learning. At Cedars, this term, we have implemented a whole school approach to providing our pupils with unique working walls to assist and develop their learning through all stages of the writing process. Our English Working Walls represent a year specific, age appropriate approach to writing, where the technical tools of the trade are accessible and added to as the writing develops. The working wall is a crucial tool during the planning, drafting and up-levelling stage providing a bank of adverbials, openers, vocabulary and so on. Most importantly, the English Working Wall is used by the children, who add to it throughout the genre.
‘I can look at the English Working Wall to help me if I get stuck.’ Aisha
