‘A word after a word after a word is power.’

— Margaret Atwood —


Writing is a major part of our curriculum offer at Pennoweth, from Nursery to Year 6. Through a continued focus on developing each child as a powerful writer, we provide children with many opportunities to develop and apply their writing skills to a range of genre, for a variety of audiences, purposes, and contexts.


We encourage children to develop a love of the subject and empower them to express their thoughts and ideas clearly and creatively through the written word. Our curriculum provides opportunities for children to experience and engage with a range of well-considered texts. These texts are the driver for each topic and enhance and further promote child engagement, ensuring appropriate depth and breadth to the learning.


Children are taught to plan, revise, edit and evaluate their writing, keeping the purpose and audience of each piece firmly in mind.

Progression in Writing
We have carefully mapped writing across the school for this year and next. This ensures that each child will have experience of writing for a wide range of purposes: to inform, to entertain and to persuade.
