At Norfolk Community Primary School we believe that children need good models of writing to support them to produce their own high-quality work. Therefore we follow invest a lot of time exploring WAGOLL examples and developing writing skills. Children complete extended pieces of writing by planning (through discussion of key success criteria), drafting, editing and publishing.
We also use ‘The Power of Reading’ to teach writing as it allows us to use engaging stories as inspiration and a starting point for the children’s writing.
We teach grammar within the context of what we are writing, often exploring real-life examples from published authors to understand how they have manipulated grammar to make their writing effective and interesting.
