The aim of our writing curriculum is to enable the children to become confident and enthusiastic writers who understand the characteristics of a wide range of genres, both fiction and non-fiction.
We teach the children to:
How we teach writing
Daily Literacy lesson
This includes speaking and listening, reading and learning new writing skills.
Talk for writing
The children memorise different types of texts so that they learn words and phrases to use in their own writing.
Groups of children writing at the same level write with an adult who helps them with the next steps in their learning.
Writing across the curriculum
Children produce a piece of writing every day – this might be part of a literacy lesson, or writing in other subjects.
The children learn to write for lots of different purposes:
