At Southmead pupils are provided with many opportunities to develop their writing across the curriculum to become confident, creative, fluent writers able to express themselves clearly. They will be able to write for a purpose and will be given opportunities to share their writing with others, both within our school and the wider community. The skills to talk about their own writing, to
explain stylistic choices and the impact their vocabulary choices have on the reader will be developed. Quality texts by a wide range of authors are used to inspire pupils, to challenge children’s understanding of vocabulary and style and to enable them to create their own pieces. Children will become careful proof readers and editors of their own work and that of their peers, understanding that all writers use this process to develop their writing. A neat and fluent joined handwriting style is taught and children will use this in their work across the curriculum. Opportunities will be given to redraft and present work in a variety of ways so that all children can take pride in their achievements in writing.
