Writing is a key focus for us this year. We want to develop children's imagination, for children to be able to express themselves clearly and to have the secretarial skills to produce high quality writing. We use real books to do this.
Children are expected to join their handwriting as they progress through the school. We consider good presentation to be an important element of writing.
Please open the PDF below to see how we teach writing across the school.
We also teach phonics and spelling through a scheme called "Read Write Inc". (See the section "How we teach reading").
You can also find some helpful parent guides about how to pronounce the phonics we teach in the "Curriculum section".
