Writing

  We ensure that children:

  • Write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences. We use writing pedagogies such as Talk4writing as a framework for genre specific writing units that allow all children to have sufficient scaffolding support to flourish as writers. It is powerful because it enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally before reading and analysing it and then writing their own version
  • Think of writing as a process made up of five components: — planning; — drafting; — revising; — editing; and — publishing. •
  • As effective writers use a number of strategies to support each component of the writing process. For example, planning can be improved through the strategy of goalsetting.
  • Know how, when, and why they should use each strategy, practise following feedback.
  • Use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
  • Are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.
