So lovely to see the lighter mornings and evenings as we move into spring. As always, children and staff have worked hard to ensure we are closing the gaps in learning. School led tuition has begun and I thank all the children and parents for your engagement, it really makes a difference.
Our whole school approach to writing is delivered through ‘Talk for Writing’ as we know that children, particularly in their younger years, cannot write what they cannot say. Rich text selection allows children to continue embedding their reading skills whilst building an understanding of genre and themes.
All classes plan, draft, proof-read, suggest improvements to their own and others’ writing, edit and then produce final written pieces before reading their compositions aloud.
