Writing Intent: Through Talk for Writing and using carefully selected texts, the children are exposed to and use a wide range of rich English vocabulary. This enables them to enhance the quality of their work across the wider curriculum. It is important that children revisit their writing, edit and improve, before creating the final piece of fluent work. Good cursive handwriting speeds up children’s writing leaving them free to concentrate on composition, spelling and grammar. Grammar is an integral part of English and great emphasis is placed on the use of games, drama and other adventurous and interactive strategies to support children master Standard English throughout their learning journey at West Town Lane.
