Writing

Writing at SSPP is driven by text, purpose and audience.  Our spine of core teaching texts ensure that children are given the chance to study high-quality books and then explore their own writing development with tasks which have meaning.

Our full English Overview (showing the texts studied in English and Reciprocal Reading as well as many of the writing outcomes produced in each year group) can be found on our English home page here.

 

Our Special Writing Journey

Every term, children produce a piece of writing which forms part of their SSPP writing journey.  This begins in Reception and travels with them through to the end of Year 6.

These pieces are built around a theme.  In Autumn, all children work on narrative writing based on a picture stimulus; for Spring they are asked to work on and create a piece of first person writing; in the Summer the theme across the school is focussed on poetry.

These books are a wonderful way of showing children how far they have progressed from their earliest years through to the time where they are ready to make the move onto secondary school.

 

Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling

Although most of the teaching in these areas is built into the main English lessons - allowing children to develop these in the context of real stories and writing - we do have access to a complete set of 'Rising Stars' resources (Year 1- Year 6) which break down key areas into separate units of work.  These allow for short, focused sessions to help consolidate the children's learning.
