It is our intent at Cookridge Holy Trinity to ensure that all our pupils become effective and imaginative communicators who can confidently share their knowledge, ideas and emotions with others; we see writing as a crucial aspect of this. We aim to ensure our children develop a genuine love of language and the written word through a text-based approach, linking closely to the teaching of reading, by using the same text as the basis for writing and guided reading where possible.
