The literary texts and accompanying writing genres are generally in line with our termly topic focus. These will be adapted, as necessary, to suit the needs and interests of annual cohorts or new publications of fiction and non-fiction texts being made available. Any changes will ensure that a broad and balanced curriculum, together with mandatory coverage, is achieved.
At Langley Fitzurse, the skills for writing are taught following a progressive approach in line with the ‘Wiltshire Skills for Writing’ (where possible, as a result of mixed year group classes.) Writing is assessed in the same way. Each term focuses on particular writing skills and composition objectives to be taught. Application of the previously taught objectives will also be observed in children’s writing.
See below for set of documents we use as checklists to help us judge children’s writing for each year group.
