Talk for Writing – About Talk for Writing. Impact on school attainment Many schools have found that daily storytelling can have a dramatic influence on progress in composition.
For instance, the initial teacher research into this approach focused on 4-and 5-year-olds in Reception classes. At the start of the year, only 2% of the sample was able to retell a whole story. By the end of the year, 76% retold a whole tale in fluent standard English. In a study carried out in Lewisham (reported in ‘Stories to tell, stories to write’, available from Lewisham Professional Development Centre, Kilmorie Road, London SE23 2 SP), 100% of the primary age pupils tracked made average progress in writing and 80% made 3 or more sublevels of progress in one year.
