Intent of our Writing curriculum
Retention – Application – Inspiration – Success for Everyone
It is our intent that writing across the curriculum will inspire, engage and challenge all pupils, enabling them to develop the skills to effectively communicate their thoughts, ideas and emotions to others.
We aim to build the pupils’ stamina for writing, vocabulary knowledge and understanding of grammar, by creating a positive approach to an increasingly wide range of text types (including areas of fiction, non-fiction and poetry).
We recognise the importance of fostering a culture where pupils take pride in their writing, write clearly and accurately, and modify their structure and language choices to suit a variety of audiences, purposes and contexts.
To support pupils in moving towards independent writing at the age-related standard, we provide a wide range of writing stimuli, including the use of film and imagery; modelled, shared and guided writing; peer conferencing; and group discussion. These rich and varied set of learning opportunities support pupils in becoming confident and enthusiastic learners across all areas of the curriculum.
At Halewood C of E Primary School, we want writing to equip our pupils with the necessary tools to communicate effectively, to develop a love of writing and to provide them with the skills to become lifelong creative writers.
