As writers...

Children at St Bernadette's will develop the skills to:

  • Write in a variety of genres being aware of the audience, purpose and context
  • Understand the use of grammar
  • Broaden their language and vocabulary through etymology
  • Use their imagination to write creatively
  • Present work that is neat and clearly organised
  • Continue to develop their writing across a range of curriculum areas
  • Plan, edit and evaluate their work and the work of others

How do we teach writing?

Writing is taught through a range of stimuli which includes books, film clips, artefacts, visitors and real-life experiences. Teachers model the writing process and demonstrate the ambitious high standards expected of all children.

 If we use a rich vocabulary when talking to children and we talk about language and its etymology, the children will use this knowledge and it will help them bring their writing to life.
