Our Writing curriculum is designed to provide a wide coverage of different knowledge and skills alongside different genres, topic links, cultural capital and classic texts. We build on these throughout the year groups, referring back to previously learning before adding another layer. Stimulating and rich texts are carefully chosen to inspire children as writers.
We link tasks to topic learning where possible, and find purpose for writing such as sharing with a buddy from another class, reading aloud in assembly or inviting parents in for a celebration workshop. We have high expectations and encourage to make links with other areas of Literacy. We love to display examples of children's excellent writing to make them feel like real authors.
Please read our Writing Rationale below; this fully explains our passion and intent in supporting and celebrating our writers.
