English, Reading and Writing

Writing Intent statement

It is our intent that children at St Mary’s receive a high quality writing curriculum that develops confident writers, communicators and fluent readers who are able to effectively articulate their knowledge, ideas and emotions through their writing.

We want children to write accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style for a range of subjects, contexts, purposes and audiences. We aim for children to use their knowledge of grammar, punctuation and spelling to express their thoughts with clarity, efficiency and meaning.

We want children to know that all good writers follow a writing process of planning, refining and editing their work, identifying their own areas for improvement.

We believe that all pupils should be encouraged to take pride in the presentation of their writing and display a neat, cursive style developing as they go through the school.
