At Brookfield we aim to increase children’s interest and engagement through opportunities for interactive and ‘fun’ writing:
To prepare the children for writing we spend English lessons encouraging them to ‘talk’ through their story journeys and develop their ideas through drama and partner talk which helps them to build their vocabulary. We help them to create, build, develop and improve their ideas so in the end they are just ‘bursting’ to write.
Our children are prepared right up to the point of writing and we even spend time at the beginning of lessons preparing grammatically correct and appropriate sentences, creating banks of high quality vocabulary and developing focused grammar skills so they all have a starting point for their writing. They work towards completing an extended piece of writing throughout the week, alongside self and peer assessment, which helps to improve their final piece.
