According to the research, Improving Literacy in Key Stage Two, published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), the primary school children should be taught to spell and write accurately as well asquickly. Accuracy and fluency are the two main factors which is needed to create a strong base in content writing. The study also encourages children to read books out loud and discuss them with their friends. Moreover, the report thoroughly reviewed the best available researches to identify the most comprehensive and practical literary teaching techniques that can improve the content writing of pupils.

The report, summarizing the results, stated that the writing skills of primary school students which include typing, spelling and handwriting, needs to become more “automatic.” This would help them concentrate more on the content they’re producing.

One of the literary strategies, highlighted by the study is to help the students improve their writing skills. Even though, the most important factor which helps one become a confident content writer is constant practice, remaining motivated to improve your content writing is also important.

Another suggestion proposed in the report is to promote reading amongst students. Help them read books out loud and also hold discussions amongst their group of friends to stimulate quick thinking. This practice also helps them gain exposure to a wide range of topics, texts and media.

According to Sir Peter Lampl, chairman of the EEF “Good literacy skills provide the building blocks not just for academic success, but for fulfilling careers and rewarding lives. Yet despite our best efforts too many children, particularly those from poorer homes, are leaving primary school without reaching the levels in reading and writing they need to achieve.”
