Writing and Grammar
We teach writing through a two weekly cycle programme we have developed, called, 'Write for All'. Each fortnightly cycle is based on a different genre, or style of writing. These are often cross-curricular, drawing in other subjects children are learning at the time, especially through their topics. In all writing cycles, our emphasis is always on writing for purpose, with an audience in mind. See our Write For All Policy for details.
If you look at our Write For All Policy, you will see that grammar teaching is a key element. For more information on what grammar we teach to children when, see our Grammar and Spelling Progression Map.
This year we have introduced an initiative around inclusive texts, as part of our work on preparing pupils for life in modern Britain and ensuring our curriculum is fully representative. To find out more see our letter to parents about our inclusive texts initiative.
