At The Meadow Primary School, we believe that writing is crucial. It is a formal or informal capture of factual information and creative imagination. It is a means to communicate to an audience the full spectrum of human emotions and intent. Words are a powerful exchange between writer and reader. Learning to write requires careful, deliberate and systematic teaching as well as enthusing and inspiring children by developing their love of language. To achieve this, writing is taught through 3 zones: the ideas of writing, the tools of writing and the techniques of writing within a range of non-fiction and fiction genres. Where appropriate, we link our writing context to our curriculum themes, finding real life reasons for children’s writing to enthuse them with purpose.
