Children are taught the life skills they need to become independent and accurate writers for a variety of audiences.


Teaching in handwriting, spelling, grammar and punctuation are emphasised and children are given a broader and more sophisticated range of writing opportunities as they progress through school. Children use the principles of 'The Write Stuff' by Jane Considine where they are taught to use high-quality vocabulary in an engaging, collaborative environment.


Children are encouraged to identify their own mistakes and know what they need to do to improve their work.  Writing opportunities are planned across the curriculum and include selected, high-quality texts.
