Writing is taught in many different curriculum areas but, most specifically, in daily literacy lessons. During each year children will learn how to write a variety of different text types such as stories, non-fiction texts and poetry. They will learn how: to plan and structure their writing; write to interest the reader; write grammatically correct sentences that are well punctuated and are spelled correctly. Spelling and handwriting are taught through daily letters and sounds lessons in EYFS and KS1 and through spelling sessions three times a week in KS2. Grammar and punctuation is taught weekly as a focus within one literacy lesson but is also included within the literacy lesson each day. 


Every two weeks we carry out a "Big Write" which encourages our children to enjoy writing.  Teachers, Governors and children celebrate progress in writing in a celebration service every two terms where those children who have made the most progress in writing will win a prize donated by the Governors. Children’s work will be displayed on a special celebration display in the hall.
