Writing

Intent:  Carlton Junior And Infant School - Our Writing Sequence

At Langley Fitzurse Primary School we believe that a quality Literacy (English) curriculum should develop children’s love of reading, writing and discussion and that all pupils should be able to confidently communicate their knowledge, ideas and emotions through their writing and speaking. We want pupils to acquire a wide vocabulary, a solid understanding of grammar and be able to spell new words by effectively applying the spelling patterns and rules they learn throughout their time in primary school. We want them to write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences. We believe that all pupils should be encouraged to take pride in the presentation of their writing, in part by developing a good, joined, handwriting style by the time they reach upper Key Stage 2. We believe that all good writers refine and edit their writing over time, so we want children to develop independence in being able to identify their own areas for improvement in all pieces of writing, editing their work effectively during and after the writing process. We want all children to work to the best of their ability and make appropriate progress. We want to inspire children to be confident in the art of oracy and use discussion to communicate and further their learning. We understand the importance of parents and carers in supporting their children to develop both grammar, spelling and composition skills, and encourage a home-school partnership which enhances children’s learning outcomes. We believe that children need to develop a secure knowledge base in Literacy, which follows a clear pathway of progression as they advance through the primary curriculum. We believe that a secure basis in literacy skills is crucial to a high-quality education and will give our children the tools they need to participate fully as a member of society.
