Heronswood Primary School and Pre-School


Heronswood believes that Writing skills are vital to the development of children so children are prepared for their future life. A broad and balanced English programme using objectives from the National Curriculum 2014, determines the knowledge and skills that each phase and Key Stage must cover.


Through using quality key texts a diverse range of genres are studied. A variety of strategies are used to promote a reading and writing culture. Children are given a range of writing opportunities including the use of paired, group and independent writing tasks. A culture of learning from each other is promoted through use of co-operative learning structures which include peer editing and improving.


Adults model the writing process so that children see adults as writers.  This is developed across both key stages, so that the children learn to respond appropriately and supportively to each other regardless of gender, age, cultural or ethnic background.
