Writing is a powerful means of communication which builds on the spoken word. This vital skill is necessary to allow pupils to function, engage and contribute within our society.
Our aims in teaching writing are to equip pupils with a strong command of spoken and written language, and to develop a love of literature. Across the school, we ensure that there is a good coverage of genres, which are progressive across year groups.
At Avonwood Primary we teach writing alongside a different high-quality text every half term, which develop vocabulary, reading and writing skills. The overview of the key texts can be found on the website. We have designed the writing curriculum to best suit the needs of the pupils and to spark interest and curiosity. Children are given the opportunities to write for real purposes and audiences. Moreover, our pupils have opportunities to apply and showcase their writing skills across other areas of the curriculum
