Writing at Nevill Road Junior School
Our Writing Intent: At Nevill Road Junior School we encourage children to use their imagination, be creative and have a love for writing. We value writing as a key life skill, and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong writers. Children are encouraged to write across a wide range of genres including fiction, non-fiction and poetry as well as in all subject areas. Our writing cycle uses a variety of ‘hooks’ to engage and excite children with drama and quality texts as an integral part of this process. Children are encouraged to experience and talk about their learning, which enables them to develop their confidence in using key skills and knowledge to be creative and structure their writing. SPAG and handwriting skills are also linked to the writing cycle in order for children to understand that this is all part of the writing process.
Please see the document 'Writing at Nevill Road' to see how we teach writing across school.
