Writing

‘You can make anything by writing.’ C.S. Lewis

Purpose of study 

The enjoyment of writing is promoted throughout our curriculum, we provide pupils with a wealth of inspiring, interesting and engaging opportunities to write. Our curriculum enables pupils to develop their ability to write fluently and independently, in order to communicate their ideas to varied audiences and for a range purposes. We provide children with a broad experience of genres and develop their knowledge and understanding of writing for all text types (fiction, non-fiction and poetry), so they learn to become thoughtful, reflective and evaluative writers. We recognise the importance of the link between reading and writing and encourage children to acquire a wealth of high quality vocabulary through the texts they read. The skills of grammar, punctuation and spelling are taught throughout our writing sequence to ensure children become confident, competent and proficient writers. Writing in other subject areas enables pupils to continue the development and application of their writing skills.

 

Aims 

Our writing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Can develop the knowledge and skills to communicate their ideas clearly and accurately through writing.
  • Can adapt the content of their writing for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.
  • Can communicate coherently by applying the skills of grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting.
  • Can write creatively by expressing thoughts and feelings, utilising rich vocabulary from reading and speaking. 
  • Can be enthused and inspired to develop a lifelong appreciation for a rich and varied literary heritage.

Organisation

  • Writing is promoted daily to inspire and motivate children so that they see themselves as ‘writers.’
  • Planning follows a bespoke, phase specific, Literacy Overview. This is based on high quality texts and a range of stimuli to inspire and motivate children to write.
  • Teachers have access to a bespoke ‘Let’s Write Toolkit’ to support planning and delivery of all writing opportunities across the school.
  • A personalised, progressive, writing sequence is applied to each unit of study.
  • Shared and modelled writing forms an essential part of the writing process, this includes continual modelling of rich language, grammar and punctuation.  
  • The value of self and peer editing is promoted throughout the writing process.
  • Across the school children develop their stamina for writing independently across genres, for a range of purposes and through varied curriculum subjects. 
  • In year 6 a range of text types are revisited throughout the year with a focus on the effect of language and grammatical structures on the reader.
