Writing at Holy Trinity

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.

At Holy Trinity 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. Through careful planning, links are made across the curriculum to ensure children’s writing is both relevant and meaningful, bringing together learning in History, Geography and RE.  It is our intent that children see writing as an important and enjoyable process which incorporates being able to plan, organise and revise their work with increasing independence. We want pupils to develop an awareness of audience, purpose and context, and an increasingly wide knowledge of vocabulary, punctuation and grammar. With regards to spelling, teachers will show pupils how to understand the relationships between words, how to understand nuances in meaning, and how to develop their understanding of, and ability to use, figurative language. At Holy Trinity, we set high expectations for all our children to take pride in their work and develop fluent, cursive handwriting and ensure they leave us understanding the importance of writing as a skill for life-long learning.
