Children are given plenty of opportunities to write from Playgroup through to Year 6. Children in Year 2-4 have fortnightly big write lessons and the children from Year 5-6 have big write lessons every week. During the week the children have the chance to see the text modelled by the teacher. They will also read, research,look at sentence level skills, edit their work, work in groups, pairs or independently. We deliver the curriculum through speaking and listening activities, visual literacy and drama.
The children have exciting lessons leading up to their big write, ensuring they have been taught and had time to practise the skills they would need to write that week.
Our children spend half a term looking at non fiction texts and half a term looking at fiction texts.
