Writing is one of our passions and also something we know does not always come easy to children. It can be quite a challenge to co-ordinate and to create at the same time! Spelling, handwriting, composition and proof-reading all fall under this skill – not to mention grammar!
So, we are focussing at Hunsley Primary on developing our children into being confident and fluent writers, able to use this skill to express their needs, ideas and hopes on the page, be that handwritten, types or dictated!
We use a wide range of teaching and learning techniques when it comes to writing and we also work with a number of specific strategies: Talk for Writing, Colourful Semantics, Nelson Thornes handwriting scheme. We have based our approaches to teaching on the Education Endowment Foundation’s research work on spelling support (Improving Literacy in Key Stage One / Key Stage Two).
