- Writing objectives are taken from the National Curriculum for English which shows a progression in a variety of strands from the beginning of Early Years to the end of Key Stage 2.
- We are following a book-led curriculum in Writing.
- Writing is taught using one book per half-term, split into a fiction unit and a non-fiction unit. Each unit is split into three one-week sessions – Reading, Gathering Content and Writing.
- We use this style of teaching to try and help children ‘join the dots’ between Reading and Writing, looking at how they can apply the concepts they learn from one of these areas, into the other.
- Planning is completed using the Teacher’s PAL resource (a planning tool the school has worked on BC Education with), which all teaching staff have had group and individual training on.
- We intend to develop creative writers, who can write in a range of genres, both fiction and non-fiction.
- We set high standards to ensure that the transcription and grammatical areas of the children’s writing are improved.
- We regularly focus on the desired audience for a piece of writing, so our children develop a genuine purpose to their writing.
