English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils, therefore, who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised.

Progression in writing.

In our main entrance you will see examples of early mark making from our nursery children to Y2 children writing short stories.  Please refer also to our handwriting policy. Full time children have writing books with line guides to support the handwriting policy.  Please feel free to look at your child's book during our daily morning learning sessions (8:45am - 9:00am).

In the attachments section below you will find a link to national exemplification of Y2 writing linked to the Interim Frramework.  Also, there are further examples of writing across YR, Y1 and Y2. 

We host regular family learning workshops for you to attend and join in with exciting writing opportunities.
