Writing at Booker Hill

Writing

Our aims for writing

At Booker Hill we want to create an engaged community of writers who write because they enjoy doing so —because they appreciate and understand writing for different purposes and audiences.

WRITING is a complex task that involves the use and coordination of many thinking skills. Therefore, many pupils find writing challenging. At Booker Hill we aim to teach the skills needed together with fostering a love and appreciation of writing.

Our key aims are to:

  • Teach pupils the writing process  including planning, revising, and editing  written products (through teacher modelling, supported writing and independent writing) - Composition
  • Teach pupils to write for a variety of purposes and audiences  so that they understand what their writing will look and sound like to others - Composition
  • Inquiry: Set writing assignments that require use of inquiry skills (including establishing a clear goal for writing)
  • Teach pupils to become fluent with handwriting, spelling, sentence construction, typing and word processing—Transcription
  • Provide time to write both as guided and free writing
  • Develop stamina to write at length and across different subjects
