Children develop a joy for writing from the emergent writing in the Foundation Stage to the accomplished and confident writers that leave our school at the end of Year 6.
We acknowledge the value of giving pupils the opportunity to rehearse what they want to write. Through the use of well-planned learning sequences, children are given opportunities to verbalise ideas. At VIPS at East Borough, we support pupils to be confident writers by structuring the learning sequence to inspire imagination, gain new vocabulary and apply their knowledge of grammar and punctuation.
At VIPS at East Borough, we value the importance of children reflecting on their own learning, and that of peers, to edit and improve their writing as a result. Teachers also use feedback marking to inform pupils of their next steps and to inform future planning.
