Just enough writing time?

With just three weeks to go before schools are out for the summer, can you make more time for writing and write alongside your young writers? Can you leave behind the end-of-year writing assessments/interim framework now? Why not give yourself permission to sit down amongst them and have a go at doing what they’re doing: freewriting, drawing, talking and preparing to compose the final piece of the year – preferably a piece of their own choosing.

Perhaps they’ll want to revisit their favourite genre and write a poem, a story, a letter or a blog? What might you choose? Will you publish this work? Maybe it would be easier and more productive to return to an earlier piece? Something that was begun and never finished – that never quite got polished and published?
