Writing

'The Write Stuff'

At Laurel Lane Primary School, we believe that learning to write for a range of purposes, is essential to be able to contribute to the world. We believe that giving children the necessary skills to be able to write will empower them to be able to make connections and explain their reasons.

We aim to give pupils the opportunities to stimulate their love of writing by providing them with high quality examples and the structure that they need to be confident in writing independently. Using ‘The Write Stuff’ scheme of learning we give children the opportunity to express themselves in smaller chunks, over a short period, which all culminates in a larger written piece, which imitates the original: this allows the child the opportunities to explore and show skills they have learnt in a secure environment, whilst also giving the opportunity to take risks.
