Developing skilled, independent writers is at the core of our writing process.
The first lesson of each topic is a writing baseline and the final lessons involve the pupils completing and editing their own independent writing pieces. This enables us (and the children) to review the progress made by comparing these writing pieces.
From Baseline to Final Independent Writing Piece
"I loved this topic because we got to use our visit to the supermarket to help us in our description. This really helped me imagine what the character was feeling and gave me ideas when I was writing." Izabelle
"I enjoyed this topic because I got to use direct speech and report about an event that happened. It was fun to tell everybody about the Zuckerman's finding 'Some Pig' in Charlotte's Web." - Jacob
"I loved learning about volcanoes and, in particular, Mount Etna. I found out lots of fascinating facts and enjoyed writing my report." - Liam K
