Children and Young People's Writing

The National Literacy Trust has just published Children and Young People's Writing, a new report which looks at data from its annual literacy survey - overall almost 35,000 children aged 8 to 16 took part. As you might expect it's quite a detailed document, though it mainly seems to have made headlines for its claim that boys are more than twice as likely as girls to say they hate writing.

You can read the full report by clicking here. Also new today from the Trust  is Transforming Writing, the final report of a project which developed a model for the teaching and learning of writing with a greater focus on formative assessment.
