We aim to develop the children’s ability to produce well structured, detailed writing in which the meaning is made clear and which engages the interest of the reader. Attention is paid throughout the school to the formal structures of English, grammatical detail, punctuation and spelling. Our approach to teaching writing covers the ‘transcription’ and ‘composition’ requirements of The National Curriculum (2013). Evidence of writing opportunities and progress is evident in English books, Topic and other curriculum books.
We recognise the important role that computing has to play in our school in the development of English skills. There are also many opportunities for children to improve their writing inspired by drama techniques and film clips– each year group uses film ‘text’ at least once a year. Interactive technology is used on a daily basis to enhance the teaching of English.
