At Victoria Road School we have adopted a whole school approach to the teaching of writing. We call it the Writing Journey.
- To increase the number of opportunities for the children to complete extended pieces of writing every term
- To ensure the children experience their ideas through a practical activity as well as talking before they write. They must ‘live’ their writing first. The writing should be the final part of the journey.
- To ensure all year groups have a consistent approach to the teaching of writing and all the required elements of the National Curriculum are included.
- To encourage writing to be cross curricular and more relevant to the children
