Write for real purposes and real audiences

The Write a book Project incorporates the ideals of the revised English Primary School Curriculum. The Curriculum advises that children should “write for real purposes and real audiences” stressing that “drafting, editing and redrafting is at the heart of the writing process” and encouraging the “publishing ” of and sharing of a child’s writing. The Curriculum claims that “success and accomplishment will inspire and motivate them to further writing”.
