How we teach writing at Littleport Community Primary School


Writing is one of the most important things that we teach in primary school. Almost every other area of the curriculum is assessed through writing; being an effective writer is crucial to academic success. Being able to communicate ideas successfully enables our learners to share their ideas with the wider world. By the time they leave us, it is our intention that our students are confident writers able to convey their ideas to a range of audiences and different purposes. Children will be able to communicate with confidence and clarity, drawing on a high level of understanding of the impact of punctuation, appropriate grammar and ambitious vocabulary. We will engage pupils in a wide range of stimulating writing opportunities supported by high quality texts across a range of genre. We will drive improvement through a 2- layered approach: transcription and composition.


Phonics is systematically taught following the Little Wandle programme throughout the EYFS and Key Stage 1. In Key Stage 2, where applicable, decoding skills, spelling and reading fluency are supported by targeted intervention linked to Little Wandle materials, alongside QFT and bespoke interventions.
