Why is Writing important?
Writing and communication are key life skills. Our writing curriculum, enables the children to develop the skills and knowledge which will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through written language and equip them with the skills to become lifelong learners. Through a structured sequence and high quality texts, we want the children to enjoy and appreciate a wide variety of literature and writing opportunities.
Reading and writing is central to our curriculum. Understanding and enjoyment of books is supported through daily story time and sharing books in all of Early Years. We use ‘core books’ in Nursery and Reception, both fiction and non-fiction to develop children’s knowledge and understanding of the world. We immerse the children in high quality books, involving lots of talk and role play, to engage the children and raise attainment in reading and writing. We develop children’s writing through spoken language as well as their personal experiences and comprehension of stories.
