Rapid Writing

Writing catch-up for struggling learners that's proven to work

Rapid Writing is a different approach to writing catch-up. Ideal for use with small groups or for one-to-one support, it's perfect for helping close the attainment gap in writing.  Created by expert authors, you can be reassured that the progression is spot on and will help children succeed across the whole curriculum.

"One of the really wonderful things about Rapid Writing is that the materials are so motivational. They are very fun ...very  bright ... laid out beautifully, they give children opportunities to have a practice before they do the real thing."
