Writing & Handwriting

Writing is an essential part of our curriculum offer.  We have lots of wonderful opportunities to inspire writing such as books, small world, film clips, visitors in and visits out.  We strive to equip our children to develop a rich vocabulary which can help them bring their writing to life.  Basic skills and an agreed set of ‘non-negotiables’ underpin writing in all areas of the curriculum.  This starts in EYFS where pupils learn how to hold a pencil and begin to form their letters, words and sentences.  Teachers model the writing process and demonstrate the standard that is expected of all children.  Every child is encouraged to let their imagination and personality shine through their writing.  We also use Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk for Writing’ approach, when appropriate, to help pupils create their own writing inventions.  Writing is often linked to other subjects, finding real life reasons for our children’s writing to enthuse them with purpose.
