WRITING INTENT

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." Toni Morrison

At Fremington, it is our intent to foster a love of writing within our pupils. We believe that all pupils should be able to confidently communicate and express their knowledge, ideas and emotions through their writing. We strive to help our children develop into articulate and imaginative communicators. We aim to ensure all of our children develop a genuine love of language and the written word. We want to prepare children with the essential writing skills they will need for later life by providing an enriched and engaging English curriculum, where they write with a clear purpose across all subjects.

Talk for Writing

The teaching of writing is delivered in a creative, stimulating and cross-curricular way, linked with the topic. Children are taught through a writing process where they are introduced to a high quality text, which includes the writing skills we would like to teach them. Talk for writing plays a vital role in developing children’s writing at our school. Children are provided with many opportunities to use a range of drama techniques and opportunities to orally share their writing

Writing in KS2

The image below outlines the texts we have selected for our children using the talk for writing approach. Each class covers 2 units of work per half term. These texts have been selected as they make meaningful links to our curriculum, cover a range of writing genres and cover all of our writing objectives for each year group outlined in our writing progression (see top of the page). There is space in each year group for teachers to select additional texts that link to the philosophical concepts for the term, in addition to texts that can support objectives the children need further work on. 

To see these extra selections for each year group, please refer to each year groups page, which is located under "Our Learning" on the home page.
