Writing

 

Our writing programme of study has been designed to support our children in the development of writing. Children’s writing is linked directly to their topic, giving them the opportunity to build on their topic subject knowledge and vocabulary. Children will write in a wide range of genres each year allowing them to build on their text specific knowledge. Grammar is intrinsically linked to gaps identified and the text type being written, in order to embed grammatical skills and knowledge.

  • What - We plan writing to enable children to use a wide range of writing skills for purposes including entertainment, information, persuasion and discussion together with appropriate grammar, punctuation and spelling.
  • Why - We do this to ensure our pupils can communicate effectively to a range of audiences and for a range of purposes.
  • How - Writing is planned to link to the broader curriculum, exposing children to high quality age-appropriate models;  broadening their vocabulary and  providing a clear purpose and audience.
