A mastery of writing is a crucial life skill,as well as providing an unparalleled means of creativity and expression. There are many aspects to successful writing, including handwriting, spelling, grammar, vocabulary and composition (putting together ideas in writing). It is important that pupils, parents and teachers develop a good understanding of the child's strengths and areas for developent in their writing, so that we can work together to ensure the child is the best writer they can be.


This Term

We are currently doing a book study based on the book Bill's New Frock. The children have enjoyed using drama to understand how a character might be feeling. We will be writing fictional diaries as the main character Bill.

Later this term we will be writing stories based on the short film Last Shot.
