Writing Aims

At Steyning C of E Primary we believe that writing should be a creative/developmental process both at a functional and an imaginative level. We value all attempts at writing, and we know that all children have potential to be successful writers. Compositional and transcriptional skills are taught alongside the creative aspects of writing to allow children to develop an understanding of the requirements of different writing genres. Immersion in topics, talk and preparation for writing is essential to the writing development process. Grammar and punctuation are explicitly taught, and children develop a good understanding of how to use these correctly.
