Barkisland's Approach to Writing!
At Barkisland we teach the National English Curriculum through texts. As a school we agreed on a Long Term Plan of specific text types to be taught in each year group. Through the texts, each class will be taught these text types as well as revisiting others taught in previous year groups. Over the course of a year, the children will have had opportunities to write for a number of different purposes.
Teachers use our Barkisland Approach to Writing as a tool.
Spelling, punctuation and grammar are taught throughout the week and is closely matched to the requirements set out in the National Curriculum. Where possible, spelling, punctuation and grammar are linked in with the teaching of specific text types, but stand-alone lessons are also often used.
