Writing

Writing

Intent
At Brooke Primary Academy, we have four simple aims for writing:
1. Teach children how to transcribe
2. Teach children how to compose
3. Develop a love of writing
4. Ensure that every child reaches their full potential

Implementation
At Brooke Primary Academy, we believe that good writers start as good readers and our reading curriculum underpins our writing. By delving deeply into of our texts, the children enjoy writing creatively and meaningfully across a range of genres. Children are given the time and opportunity to explore ideas, practise skills and celebrate their writing. Our school promotes a love of writing through clubs, assemblies and competitions.

Impact
By the time a child leaves Brooke Primary Academy we hope that every child has developed the following:
• the stamina and skills to write at length
• an extensive vocabulary
• an understanding of the relationships between words, how to understand nuances in meaning, and how to develop their understanding of, and ability to use, figurative language.
• proficiency in spelling
• the ability to clarify the meanings of unknown words and words with more than one meaning
• the ability to accurately punctuate texts
• the use of appropriate grammar
• the ability to write in a range of genres including narratives, explanations, descriptions, comparisons, summaries and evaluations
• the ability to write for a range of purposes, audiences and contexts
• to transcribe with fluency, legibility and speed
