Writing at Mullum

In Grade 1 the students have a range of teacher set writing activities to explicitly teach writing skills. Then we have free choice time to allow students to experiment with the writing process.

Writing Process

  • Planning: Creating a new idea to write about and considering the purpose and audience.

  • Drafting: Recording of ideas.

  • Revising: Make changes to improve and enhance the writing. This can involve teacher or peer feedback.

  • Editing: Students make corrections and edit for spelling, text layout, grammar, capitalisation and punctuation.

  • Publishing: Creating a good copy and becoming illustrators.


The students always enjoy coming up with their own ideas, for example ‘How to be a Smith’s Chip’.
