We are Writers

At Wensum we teach children how to write effectively for different purposes and audiences. Children write in response to the core texts we share and use these as a rich model for the use of language within their own writing.

Our REAL curriculum provides children with authentic reasons to write and a wider audience for their writing. Through their successive experiences of presenting their own learning in our REAL showcases, children learn to become more confident in sharing their learning outcomes with others and taking ownership of their learning.

Children engage actively in reviewing their own writing and that of their peers, learning how to be an effective response partner.

Teachers assess children’s progress using our Writing Assessment Pathway, identifying ‘next step’ targets and sharing these with children. Create link to Writing Assessment.
