Pupil Opportunities for Writing:

Our pupils are given a variety of opportunities to share their writing talents.  We have published stories and poems in books, our work is published in the 'Candy Jar Books' newsletter and we also have our school newspaper 'The Haslucks Times' which is open to budding journalists from all year groups.  In addition to this, we have set up an online reading blog on our website which pupils can contribute to by writing reviews of books that they have read.

Every class has a 'Free Write' area which allows pupils the space to develop their passion for writing without any constraints! 

Pupils are also offered the chance to complete the Really Broad Writing Award Challenge; an opportunity to develop their love of writing at home.  Similar to our Really Broad Reading Award, pupils can make their way through the bronze to platinum level challenges, earning certificates and praise for their work.

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar:

As a school we follow Ruth Miskin's 'Read Write Inc.' spelling scheme to teach the statutory spelling objectives for each year group.  Teachers also integrate the teaching of the statutory Common Exception Words into their writing lessons.
