From Y1 -Y6, the English curriculum is taught by studying the high-quality texts from our reading spine every half term, from which various writing opportunities are then derived. Y1/2 do this in addition to their RWI sessions. From the text, children are taught the grammar elements of the NC, corresponding to the genres being written as part of the writing process. Children are then supported in how to apply the grammatical content taught in identifying features of a high-quality modelled text before progressing to plan, write and edit a written piece which matches the purpose and audience. Children receive regular feedback from both teachers and their peers in the writing process.
We aim to provide our pupils with a ‘language rich’ environment and within our classrooms, we explore ambitious vocabulary in all lessons. We use our Knowledge Organisers and working walls to acquire an understanding of new and unknown words.
