Children will be given opportunities to write a range of texts, including narratives, non-fiction, poetry, scripts and more.
We aim to immerse our children in a range of genres and allow them to voice their inner thoughts and explore their imaginations through writing. We offer a high-quality English curriculum that enables pupils the best possible opportunities to become confident, literate, successful members of society with a deep love and understanding of English language and literature.
As part of our commitment to develop this, and in line with the National Curriculum, we will encourage pupils to:
- write for a variety of audiences and purposes
- develop their stamina and skills to write at length
- use accurate spellings
- be grammatically correct and use accurate punctuation
Writing development is incremental and purposeful with a clear focus in each year group on the explicit teaching of spelling, punctuation and grammar objectives which are required for that age group.
Writing is taught through the use of high-quality texts, video clips and resources. These are carefully selected to ensure children are given the opportunity to be immersed in a diverse collection that will provide them with opportunities to write for a variety of purposes and audiences.
The curriculum progression plans for Writing ensure that there is a coherent and purposeful sequence to the teaching and learning of Writing. These plans follow the National Curriculum and outline what children are expected to know and apply and it reflects the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study. Every year group from Early Years to Year 6 complete these plans and they are a working document.
