    Hi, I'm a yr 4/5 teacher this year and have a yr 5 Maori boy who sounds very similar. He now loves writing!!!! Here's how I did it!
    I use Literacy Shed (a very rich writing based language resource) We watch the video clips and I plan my writing around them. I also give every student a 'success criteria' sheet for every piece of writing. They can see what they need to add to their writing to succeed, Surface features and Deeper features. Once they have finished writing they must check off the list and if they haven't done them they go back in red pen and make changes. This works so so well and just after a few months they start doing it automatically. My Maori boy came up to me the other day and said " I love writing now Mrs Gibson" I was stoked!
