Competency in English is underpinned by: Reading. Speaking and Listening and Writing.
We recognise that teaching of writing is most effective in a meaningful and purposeful environment, through experiences and opportunities and excellent adult and peer modelling. Children produce their best work when they are writing for an audience and purpose. Therefore, we focus on a clear purpose where children will learn the skills and features to inform, discuss, entertain and persuade. The units of work are carefully planned to immerse the children in the text type whilst identifying features and language of each genre; children then have opportunities to gather ideas, orally rehearse and plan their writing; finally children will draft, write and edit before publishing to their planned audience at the end of the unit.
