Writing

At Tuckswood we believe that confident readers will become confident writers. In English lessons we use high quality texts to engage the children, embed their knowledge and inspire their writing.

Children are taught a range of genres including:

Writing to entertain

Fantasy stories
Traditional tales
Adventure/mystery stories
Writing a performing a play/film
Detective/crime
Suspense

Writing to inform

Recounts
Explanation texts
Reports
Instructions
Labels lists and captions

 

Poetry

Classic poetry
Rhyming poems
Limericks
Narrative poems
Monologues

 

English lessons are taught in a sequence where children become familiar with the features of a genre, learn the appropriate grammar skills and write for a purpose. The children write letters to persuade, stories to share with children across the school, recounts of trips and instructions.

Some of the high quality texts we use are:
