At Bulphan we believe writing is an essential skill not only for further learning but in later life. We aim to ensure all children reach their full potential in writing, enabling them to become confident, fluent and imaginative writers.
At Bulphan, writing is taught in many different ways from the moment a child begins in EYFS. Teachers follow the 2014 National Curriculum and EYFS Curriculum in order to plan exciting and engaging English lessons where the skill of writing is specifically taught.
This happens every day and time to rehearse writing skills is provided in other areas of the curriculum. The children are taught in units, meaning they will look at a particular genre of writing i.e. narrative (story writing) over a period of 2-3 weeks. This enables children to fully immerse themselves in the techniques needed for each type of writing.
Where children need more support in writing interventions are used such as colourful semantics, Toe by Toe and precision teaching as well as bespoke support for individuals.
