At The Avenue Primary School, we strive to create exciting and stimulating writing opportunities for all children. The writing curriculum has been developed by experts across the James Cook Learning Trust and maps out a progression of skills linked to National Curriculum guidelines.
Success in any curriculum area depends upon good basic writing skills. It provides pupils with an important form of self-expression and creativity as well as making available to them the power of the written word. At The Avenue Primary School, our pupils participate in a wide variety of writing experiences. They draw from real life experiences, cross curricular enrichment opportunities and factual or creative pieces inspired by high quality books or events.
Our aim is that all pupils should be able to communicate their knowledge, ideas and emotions effectively through their writing. Throughout their time at The Avenue Primary School, we want them to acquire and employ a wide range of vocabulary and a secure understanding of grammar. Pupils are encouraged to take pride in the presentation of their work, and we aim to ensure that pupils have developed a well-formed, fluent cursive style by the time they move to secondary school.
Across school, our pupils are provided with opportunities to write for a wide variety of purposes and to apply their writing skills across the curriculum. We encourage pupils to acquire independence as writers, developing their understanding of writing as a process involving the planning, drafting, evaluating and editing of their work. Awareness of audience and purpose is fostered through discussion of model texts, and pupils are encouraged to demonstrate their understanding by incorporating key features within their own writing. By the time they leave us in Year 6, our intent is for our pupils to write accurately and coherently, consciously adapting their language and style for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.
