Curriculum Overview- Writing
At Cotford St Luke Primary School, we want all our children to be fantastic writers, taking pride in what they have written and having the opportunity to write for different purposes. We strive for our pupils to present their work in a neat format across all subjects. We expose the children to different genres of writing exploring Fiction, Non-Fiction and Poetry every term. We will use a model text to explore this style of writing before exploring the different features and writing a version for themselves.
Once the children have completed the Monster Phonics Programme they will move into using the Westover Green Spelling programme where they will learn age appropriate spellings and grammar rules.
Writing For Pleasure
"Perhaps more than any other subject, writing demands a supportive environment in which students want to become better writers because they love the opportunity to express themselves, and to interact in writing with valued peers and teachers."
