The Primary School Curriculum recognises the act of writing as part of the language learning process. Writing is a skill and a craft that needs to be taught and which is learned from practice.The children are given opportunities to engage actively and collaboratively in analysing, interpreting and constructing a variety of genres.
For the month of September classes from 1st to 6th have been focusing on recount writing.
A recount is the retelling or recounting of an event or a experience. Often based on the direct experience of the writer, the purpose is to tell what happened. Daily news telling in the classroom is a useful precursor to this particular writing genre. Recounts though often personal, can also be factual or imaginative. Look at the work of the following classes on recount writing.
