Writing Resources & Supports at Primary Level


"Writing has an equal contribution to make to the child's language development. The ability to write clearly and expressively provides him/her with a skill that can greatly enhance personal, social and vocational experience. Furthermore, through the process of expressing thoughts and feelings he/she can clarify concepts and explore emotions. The child's writing experience in school can, therefore, contribute greatly to his/her cognitive, emotional and imaginative development. "NCCA Curriculum website
