We aim for our children to be able to confidently communicate their knowledge, ideas and emotions through their writing. Our writing curriculum aims to teach children the skills they need to be successful writers, while also developing their writing voice through emersive experiences and opportunities to share and celebrate ambitious vocabulary.
By using high-quality texts as the stimulus for each unit, our writing curriculum brings clarity and consistency to the mechanics of writing and to enable our children to write effectively and coherently. Children are taught to apply basic skills, vocabulary and grammar knowledge to write effective sentences, which are full of impact and keep the reader interested.
Children explore high level, rich vocabulary and are taught grammar in context through different writing lenses on the Writing Rainbow. There are three lenses used to support children with their writing:
Fantastics – ideas for writing
Grammaristics – tools for writing
Boomtastics – writing techniques
