Big Writing

A whole-school approach to raising standards in writing

Big Writing is a methodology that is highly enjoyable and motivating and – when done right – has an immediate impact for all children.

Oxford University Press have teamed up with Andrell Education to bring all schools easy access to this proven and effective methodology with the new edition of the popular Big Writing handbooks.

You can use Project X to support your Big Writing teaching. Big Writing helps children learn how to write, whilst the Project X characters and adventures give children lots of things to write about! The guide, Using Project X to support Big Writing Teaching will help you link the two programmes for maximum impact in the classroom.
