Writing is embedded in our curriculum to enable children to have a wide range of writing opportunities so they can communicate their ideas and emotions effectively. Following the national curriculum, children are taught increasingly complex composition and grammar skills to include in their writing. Using cross-curricular links, these are then embedded in their work. By giving children a purpose and audience for their writing, as well as opportunities to share and publish their texts, they see the significance in the work they produce.
Children are taught their letters and sounds using pre-cursive writing in EYFS and this then develops to continuously cursive as they move through the school. We follow the Letter Join programme.
