At Westmeads, we teach a wide range of genres and spelling which progress through the year groups. Children are inspired in their writing by a wide range of stimuli including links with our themes. Children are taught to explore their understanding of key texts and high quality stories through multi-sensory experiences including role play and drama, group work and hands-on activities and events.
Children begin to check and edit their own work and they are actively involved in the next steps in their learning. They take pride in their presentation and work towards handwriting badges as this progresses.
CLPE Power of Reading
We are proud to be a CLPE Associate School and 'Power of Reading' school and value reading at the centre of everything we do. Each term, children will base their learning experiences around a high quality text and so far we have seen a massive impact in both the children's engagement in the reading and writing process as well as their outcomes as a result of this.
Do have a look at some of the work the children have done based on their Power of Reading text both within their books but also on the class learning journeys and displays.
