In literacy we use different approaches to support the children to become writers.
We have talk for writing units which enable the children to learn a model text and then through the unit explore how to edit, innovate and invent new texts. We use a genre approach which means we teach how to write in that style and address grammar teaching through the unit. Occasionally we use a novel approach, which means we look at a key text and then do many different styles of writing through this unit.
All these approaches enable our children to become writers for purpose.
Please see below for our writing long term plans which show you the units we teach over both year 1 and year 2 and our progression documents for writing, handwriting and reading.
