Becoming a skilled writer is a vital life skill and should be applied in all areas of the curriculum. We intend to make writing:

Writing in the Early Years Foundation Stage Children
Children are taught Phonics daily. South Kilvington has adopted the Read Write Inc Programme which is delivered to small, targeted groups. This ensures effective teaching and progression of skills through careful assessment. Children link the sounds learned to their early reading and writing. They are encouraged to mark make and write in provision areas for purpose e.g. a menu in a cafe or a list of building materials needed. Correct pencil grip and correct letter formation is modelled and encouraged.
Key Stage 1
Children are taught phonics (Read Write Inc) and SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) alongside and within English lessons. Texts/experiences are chosen carefully following the children’s interests and/or linked to the topic. The CCC approach begins in Class 2 as the format for their lessons.
Key Stage 2
Children are taught SPAG within English lessons and as a discrete lesson every day. They develop skills linked directly to the National Curriculum for their age group. Teachers encourage creativity through using high quality literature in many forms (books, videos, internet based...) Children are taught to recognise the form, audience and purpose of the genre they are studying and explore the construction of a variety of text types. Detail analysis of similar texts helps the children to understand what the success criteria are for that style of writing. This encourages them to produce increasingly high quality writing specific to the genre. The CCC approach is used effectively to expand the use of interesting vocabulary, accurate ‘technical skills’ and a finished, published piece of writing.
