A mastery of writing is a crucial life skill,as well as providing an unparalleled means of creativity and expression. There are many aspects to successful writing, including handwriting, spelling, grammar, vocabulary and composition (putting together ideas in writing). It is important that pupils, parents and teachers develop a good understanding of the child's strengths and areas for developent in their writing, so that we can work together to ensure the child is the best writer they can be.


This Half Term

This half term our writing is being inspired by a book called 'Zeraffa Giraffa' by  Diane Hofmeyr . We have written poems, letters and newspaper reports based on parts of the story. We have also learned how to use speech marks in our writing. Please practise this skill on Bug Club SPAG activities. Also continue to practise joined up handwriting on Letter Join.
