Writing at our school

Writing Aims
It is important for pupils to develop as independent, enthusiastic and expressive writers, who are able to write in a meaningful way.  They should be able to use a range of forms for a variety of purposes and audiences.  They should be confident in their choice of genre and language style for a specific purpose.  Pupils should also regard themselves as writers and value their own work and that of others.
We aim for pupils to be able to:
  • Use writing as a means to communicate ideas and information to a reader
  • Write in a grammatically accurate way
  • Develop an increasingly wide vocabulary suited to the purpose and genre
  • Write in a particular genre with a good understanding of the features of that genre
  • Understand the conventions of written language
  • Understand how writers can have an effect on the reader
  • Incorporate ideas and skills of other authors into their own writing
  • Collaborate with others during the writing process
  • Draft and re-draft, making significant revisions where appropriate
  • Work collaboratively with other children to discuss the editing of written work
  • Use ICT as a tool for writing
  • Use spelling, punctuation and syntax accurately and with confidence
