Writing:

Writing standards at school have continued to go from strength to strength. We have had a great push on ‘grammar’ across the school, which has been reflected in the children’s books and also last years KS2 SATs results, where 90% of children gained a pass in GPS and 85% in writing.

 In each class we cover a range of genres (fiction, non-fiction and poetry). We have used ‘Pie Corbetts’ style of teaching to support our children’s learning.

 At the moment, we are trying to focus more on using these skills more in the cross curriculum – children applying the genres they have been taught in their topic, science and RE books.

 We are continuing to push standards of handwriting across the school, and would like to remind parents of the importance of correct letter formation from Reception.
