Writing involves the teaching of fiction, non-fiction and poetry genres. Varied resources are used: Jane Considine’s writing units, on line resources such as websites, current affairs programme “Newsround” and children’s newspaper “First News”, and poetry textbooks. Publishing for an audience is an essential part of writing, with pupils writing for a purpose e.g. to share through displays, competitions, on the school website, in the community newsletter “Annfield Appletree”, in whole school publications such as the “When I Grow Up…Project”. Writing is assessed on entry, mid-year and end of year, through joint moderation of pupil’s independent work in books. Moderation of writing also takes place with cluster schools, to ensure it is accurate.
