At Oare Primary School, we strive to help our children develop into articulate and imaginative communicators, who are well-equipped with the basic skills they need to become life-long learners; English learning is key in this. We aim to ensure all of our children develop a genuine love of language and the written word, through a text-based approach.
Writing at Oare Primary School is centred around a high quality hook that captures the children’s interest from the outset. This may a story, a poem, a piece of non-fiction text or even a short film clip. The model that is used to teach writing is a personalised approach based around best practice taken from ‘The Write Stuff’, an approach that aims to enhance the provision and practice of writing in schools. The school environment enfolds children in stories, settings and language. There is a focus on drama, oracy and language development, equipping children with fundamental knowledge and skills that will enable them to successful throughout their lives.
Careful links are made across the curriculum to ensure that children’s English learning is relevant and meaningful: where possible linking our reading, writing to the content that we are covering in History and Geography. We ensure that children develop an understanding of how widely writing is used in everyday life and, therefore, how important and useful the skills are that they are learning.
