Writing is part of the English curriculum and we teach it both through separate lessons and through real writing in other subjects where children have a chance to describe the exciting activities they have enjoyed. We use the national curriculum for writing as this is what children will be assessed against. We have now published two volumes of, "Woodside Words", including a short piece of writing from every child in the school. National expectations are now for children to show an enhanced knowledge of grammar in their writing, as well as correct spelling and punctuation. You can access online resources for your child at SPaG.com to support them in this. Our English coordinator in Miss Stow.
