At Wyberton Primary Academy, Writing is taught through whole class English lessons and through engaging cross-curricular enquiries in non-core subjects. In order to develop confident writers who are able to communicate their knowledge, ideas and emotions through their writing, teachers use an engaging stimulus, which may include rich texts, visual literacy or real-life experiences. The Writing sequence begins with teachers helping pupils to identify the audience and purpose of their writing, and moves through various stages including analysing grammatical features, developing enriching vocabulary, planning and drafting, editing and revising over time and publishing writing or making verbal presentations for an intended audience.
The Writing curriculum has been carefully designed to meet the needs of our children and to develop their language acquisition and enable them to use ambitious vocabulary to engage the reader. Vocabulary is a fundamental part of the Writing curriculum and this is enhanced through the use of classical texts and great authors, in classroom displays and through teacher modelling. The use of books to support our Writing enables teachers to continue to raise the profile of reading and promotes the love of reading within these lessons.
