At Wrenbury Primary School, we believe that the two main components of English, reading and writing, are interconnected and not mutually exclusive; as good readers have a greater capacity to become good writers. We aim to encourage children to read widely and place a great emphasis on ' the class story' to inspire and lead not only the teaching of English but the whole curriculum through our literacy-led, creative, cross curricular approach to the curriculum. We aim to encourage our children to write in creative and imaginative ways, formally and informally, developing confidence and independence, alongside a love for the art of writing.

In pursuit of these aims, we believe that children should experience a range of engaging literature as well as a range of purposes and forms of writing, especially writing for real purposes. Underpinning this is the need for our children to develop, understand and use a wide vocabulary as well as the skills to write accurately, applying their knowledge of English grammar and punctuation and the conventions of spelling.

The National Curriculum Programme of Study (PoS) for reading and writing for each year group forms the basis of our teaching and learning. Whilst most children will be working within their age expectation, we acknowledge that some children will not be working in writing within their academic year. We look to the PoS for lower year groups for these children to ensure there are no gaps in their learning and there is continuity and progression in their knowledge, skills and understanding in their reading and writing skills.

At Wrenbury, our aim is that our children are confident and capable readers and writers by the time they leave primary school and during their primary years with us are able to:

-Read easily, fluently and with good understanding

  • Develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information
  • Acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
  • Appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
  • Develop their powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness
  • Develop a capacity to convey meaning to a range of audiences through an interest in words and their meaning, and a growing vocabulary
  • Become familiar with a range of forms of fiction and non-fiction writing e.g. books, brochures, letters, diary entries, stories etc
  • Follow a structured phonics programme beginning in the Foundation Stage and working on daily phonic sessions through to the end of Y1 and further, if children need this
  • Understand and learn the rules and conventions for spelling accurately
  • Use planning, drafting and editing processes to improve their work
  • Learn the conventions of written language and grammar
  • Learn to write in a fluent joined handwriting style
  • Use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
  • Be competent in the art of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.
