Children will develop the stamina and skills to write at length, with accurate spelling and punctuation. They will be taught the correct use of grammar. Pupils will build on what they have been taught to expand their writing skills. Pupils will experience a variety of writing genres. Children will develop a love of writing through use of highly engaging topics and texts to inspire them to write for many different reasons and genres.
Children learn cursive writing from Reception through Write Dance and handwriting teaching sessions which continue through Key Stage 1. Additional early intervention is given to children who need further support. Children who are consistently and legibly joining their writing are awarded a pen licence which allows them to use ink for any writing activities in their books.
