The use of engaging, relevant and high quality texts is central to our writing curriculum. These act as stimuli for children to develop and extend their writing skills. Children write for purpose wherever possible on a theme linked to the half termly topic. This commitment to ensuring the children write for purpose is why we have planned our writing curriculum around a scheme called ‘Grammar for Writing’. This scheme has been adapted into three curriculums: EYFS and Year 1, KS1 and Year 3 and Years 4 – 6.
