Writing at Sandhill Primary
The Literacy Leader is Mrs N Baker
At Sandhill Primary School we want all children to enjoy writing and be inspired to write. We want pupils to gain a wide variety of vocabulary; a solid understanding of grammar and spell words by effectively applying spelling patterns and rules they learn. We also want them to write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style for a range of different purposes and audiences.
We want children to take pride in their work and present it to the highest possible standard by using legible joined handwriting in all areas of the curriculum. All good writers refine and edit so we want children to develop independence in being able to identify areas to develop in their own pieces of writing by editing their work effectively during the writing process.
Writing is taught in a progressive way so that children can learn all the skills they need to be effective writers over time.
Handwriting is taught in a progressive way so that children are able to use transcription effectively throughout their time at Sandhill.
