Writing at Chesterton
At Chesterton Primary School, we follow a book-based writing sequences. Within each unit of work, the children are exposed to high-quality texts that engage, challenge and support our children to become critical readers, confident and informed writers. We provide opportunities for purposeful writing with a range of exciting shorter, longer and extended writing outcomes.
The Literacy Tree
The Literacy Tree Curriculum immerses children within a range of texts and genres, creating strong levels of engagement to provide meaningful and authentic contexts for primary English.
As a whole-school approach, children explore at least 115 literary texts and experience at least 90 unique significant authors as they move through the school. The Literacy Tree provides complete coverage of all National Curriculum expectations for writing composition, reading comprehension, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary, as well as coverage of spelling and phonics. All plans lead to purposeful application within a wide variety of written outcomes.
