Writing in the Early Years


In the EYFS children are supported to develop as writers through both Read, Write Inc and the process of 'Storying'.


Please see our Foundation Stage Policy for further information.

Writing in Key Stage 1


Our writing units are linked to our topics.  Throughout the year we look at a range of text types and generic story plots, each unit is supported by the study of high quality, age-appropriate texts.  



Children are introduced to the appropriate letter formation through their Read, Write Inc sessions.  In the EYFS we support the development of fine and gross motor skills through a broad range of activities including, but not limited to; playdough, finger-gym, outdoor play and creative play.


Please see our Handwriting and presentation policy for further information.
