The Technical Bit
Coming Soon – Our Literacy Policy
We plan using the Literacy Experiences and Outcomes
We assess using the National Benchmarks
We havewriting criteria based on the national benchmarks for when we are looking at writing tasks. Older children use these as checklists as they are writing.
We use Vocabulary, Connectives, sentence Openers and Punctuation to make our sentence level writing more exciting which in turn makes our writing more interesting to read. These downloadable mats can give your child ideas if they are writing at home. The idea is to progressively move down the pyramids.
