Our writing curriculum is rooted in our topical, cross curricular approach to learning. We embed writing opportunities in each topic studied and link them, where ever possible, to high quality model texts.
We help our learners see and understand the value of proof-reading, editing and drafting through modelling and careful explanation. Learners are exposed to, and encouraged to use, rich, varied vocabulary. They learn, through targeted, responsive teaching, to make deliberate grammatical choices regarding their writing's structure.
Writing competitions, celebrations and challenges are a regular annual feature and pupils receive a regular diet of author and poet visits to inspire their own creativity.
