This strategy is based on the principle that giving feedback as a collective is empowering for pupils to receive and respond to immediately. (whilst reducing teacher workload, also a great tool to use as part of home learning!)
The teacher takes a selection of books from each ability group and reads through. Using a crib sheet, feedback for the class is recorded. Individuals are celebrated and some work to be shared is identified. Common spelling and SPaG errors are noted as are areas for improvement in composition and effect.
Children are involved in a whole class discussion to recognise these and, after having heard a model answer, return to their seats to edit their work with a clear focus identified. Click below for some examples of crib sheets/work.
