Vision

We believe the ability to write is vital in order to live in the modern world. That words are a powerful exchange of thinking between reader and writer. Words illuminate sentences and it is our duty to help children discover new vocabulary, so they can make meaning precise.

Good writing is carved from clear thinking. Our goal is to equip all children with the necessary knowledge to write their ideas with clarity and coherence. Our structured approach provides opportunities for them to capture both factual and imaginative ideas and record these ideas fluently in both formal and informal styles.

Our children are sentence stealers as well as word thieves. By combining the use of inspirational texts and quality first teaching, we model how to emulate what they see, sentence by sentence, enabling them to become proficient independent authors of their own writing.

Early Writing

Our children develop their early writing alongside our synthetic approach to phonics, using Read Write Inc.

Establishing fine motor control and correct letter formation is paramount for children to free up vital working memory, enabling them to focus on content.  During Early Years, children access fine motor activities during continuous provision and taught sessions alongside regular teacher-led letter formation development.

Similarly, early spelling places a significant load on working memory. To enable children to reach the primary goal of communicating their ideas effectively, it is important to minimise the extraneous load of spelling. Our children, therefore, are encouraged and supported in spelling both phonetically regular and high frequency irregular words correctly as early as possible. Our staff minimise the ingraining of incorrect high frequency words through quality first teaching and short keep up sessions.

The focus and status we place on developing handwriting and spelling sits alongside our desire to help every child believe in themselves as writers and enjoy the writing process. Our positive staff model that process, carefully picking up on errors outlined above, whilst encouraging phonetically plausible attempts at other words.
