Whatever your role in our school community, these pages are provided for you to learn more about, and join in the celebration of the great writing and writers at Stanton Primary School.
At Stanton, we recognise that English skills underpin all elements of the school curriculum. Considering the fundamental importance of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing in everyday life, we are driven by the need to develop each learner’s writing ability, thus enabling them to play a full part in society.
From mark-making in Nursery to extended Writing across the curriculum in Year 6, the Teaching and Learning of Writing at Stanton is an engaging and developmental process. As you browse our web pages, we are sure that you will be struck by the fantastic commitment of our pupils, parents and staff in developing this most important life-skill!
The texts used within classes contain rich and varied vocabulary which allow children to further develop language choices within their own writing. Teacher-led activities show children how to plan, draft, rehearse and edit texts preparing them to write ambitiously. Writing tasks are varied and ensure children have the opportunity to compose a range of text types. Grammar is taught in context within the programme, ensuring children are constantly putting into practice the skills they are being taught.
