We believe excellent writing is built on a foundation of rich vocabulary, real-life experiences and a diet of out-standing literature. We focus on the purpose of writing in our English lessons in order to teach children how to write accurately and effectively. The school categorises these as ‘Writing to Inform’, ‘Writing to Explain’, ‘Writing to Persuade’ and (in Upper Key Stage 2) ‘Writing to Discuss'. These types of writing are used and applied across other subject areas in our planned and taught curriculum.
