English- Writing

Writing Subject On A Page.png



We plan learning in a thematic approach using our English curriculum texts as a driver following a mastery approach through the programme ‘Pathways to Write.’ Units of work are delivered using high quality texts and children in all year groups are given varied opportunities for writing. Skills are built up through repetition within the units, and children apply these skills in the writing activities provided.  Many opportunities for widening children’s vocabulary are given through the Pathways to Write approach and this builds on the extensive work we do in school to provide our children with a rich and varied vocabulary.  

Our curriculum is planned and sequenced so that the understanding of key concepts is deepened. Connections will continue to be made around the book so that children understand how their learning is linked within and across subjects. All children should be able to access the curriculum and experience success in doing so.

Lessons will focus on developing the long-term learning of children, not just the here-and-now. With that in mind, retrieval practice will now begin to feature throughout the curriculum so that children are encouraged and supported in remembering what they have been taught so that teachers are confident in saying that children have learnt something well. This will be supported by low stakes assessments that we ask the children to take part in.
