Leadership of Writing at Grove Primary School.

Accountable: Mrs Kelly Hough and Mrs Lauraine Barnes

Responsible: Miss Beth Jones, Mr Andrew Rough

At Grove, we love writing! Through carefully planned English units, our children develop into thoughtful readers and creative writers. Each unit starts with a hook to engage and excite the pupils. We tailor our planning carefully to suit the needs of the children and they will be taught a range of grammar, sentence structure, word/vocabulary building and spelling skills and how to apply this to their writing. During the year, the children will have the opportunity to study high-quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry units. 

Our Writing intent: 

As writers we:

  • Recognise the purpose – WAGOLL (What a good one looks like) 
  • Know our audience
  • Understand what good writing looks like/analyse texts – vocabulary
  • Generate ideas (Oracy/drama)
  • Draft, edit, revise
  • Are critical thinkers
  • Have freedom of style
  • Justify our choices
  • Have stamina
  • Publish our writing
