Becoming The Best We Can Be


The Nursery and Reception classes have exciting and relevant role-play areas and a well-resourced writing area. These allow adults to model extended vocabulary and encourages writing through purposeful, meaningful contexts. In the Foundation Stage, emphasis is on teaching writing through phonics, role play, stories, storytelling, big books and shared writing.


In Key Stage 1 units of work are planned using the National Curriculum statutory guidance, which are linked in context to other areas of the curriculum where possible. The Write Stuff Unit plans help us to deliver a sequence and progressive curriculum. Take a look below at some of the texts each year group use.
