When writing we aim to develop the following essential characteristics:


The ability to write fluently and with interesting detail on a number of topics throughout the curriculum.
• A vivid imagination which makes readers engage with and enjoy their writing.
• A highly developed vocabulary and an excellent knowledge of writing techniques to extend details or description.
• Well-organised and structured writing, which includes a variety of sentence structures.
• Excellent transcription skills that ensure their writing is well presented and punctuated, spelled correctly and neat.
• A love of writing and an appreciation of its educational, cultural and entertainment values.

We are committed to giving children real opportunities to write. We use an online publishing tool called Pobble to bring children's writing from around the world into our own classrooms. It can also be used to publish our own children's writing and share with parents.

Following our Google expedition day in March 2017, the whole school wrote their own short stories based on an underwater adventure.  Children then shared their story with a peer, providing them with feedback on what they liked and how to improve further. 

Our single plan focus for the autumn term has been to further provide opportunities to develop writing skills in and through the wider curriculum, particularly through Science.  The children have been busy writing for a range of purposes and audiences linked closely to their topic studies. Here is just some of their amazing work!
