Writing and Oracy
Writing & Oracy
Children will be encouraged to view themselves as communicators of both written and oral language. Writing opportunities are carefully planned and sequenced to help pupils draw on texts they are reading, knowledge gathered from the topics taught as well as from their own reading. Student agency and support within each class allows the children to develop a sense of independence and purpose for their writing. Pupils are given numerous opportunities to plan, draft, edit and publish their written pieces throughout their time at St Margaret's CE Junior School.
To support children in moving towards independence in their written language skills, staff will provide a wide range of activities with links to the wider curriculum, as well as modelled, shared and guided writing, peer assessment and conferencing with their peers and adults in the classroom setting. Resources are also used in each class will enable to the children to make progress and may vary for different children based on their individual needs.
