English Writing

It’s not the number of books you’ve got that matters, it’s how much you love them that counts.

Young children are wired to thrive on repetition. 

With this in mind, please look at our English writing cycle which is driven by high quality texts.  Children read, reread  and analyse these texts to understand key grammatical features in the mind of an author.  In week 1 they will imitate the features in a known text, in week 2 they will innovate in their independent writing and in week 3 they will make improvements to finally publish their writing.  Children should bring home their published writing to celebrate with you.
