At St Francis de Sales, we believe that equipping children with the skills to be confident writers is an essential and important life skill. In doing so, our pupils can communicate clearly and appropriately with a range of audiences, for a range of purposes, and make their own distinct mark on the world around them. Through our engaging writing process, we endeavour to create a love for writing so that children are intrinsically motivated and guided in developing their own independent style and learn how to use their own ‘writing voice’.
Our writing topics are designed to capture the imagination of every child. Where possible, we use effective cross-curricular links to make learning relevant and contextualised for all pupils. This also allows for purposeful opportunities for writing across the curriculum so that skills learnt during writing lessons can be applied in all pieces of writing completed. We believe that this supports children’s progress and can provide ample opportunities to extend all pupils at their own level.
Our ultimate goal is for the children to become skilled, confident and imaginative writers.
