Henbury Court Primary Academy


Henbury Court has a consistent and structured approach to the teaching of writing. We follow the EYFS Statutory Framework for Literacy and the National Curriculum for writing in Key Stage 1 and 2.

Children have the opportunity to become independent, confident and capable writers who take pride and care in work they produce. Using interesting and engaging resources, they are motivated to embrace and enjoy the challenging process of learning to write.

Children are taught to master key grammatical concepts and text types over the course of their time at school and apply these to extended pieces of writing.  Whenever purposeful, we make links between the children's writing and their learning in other areas of the curriculum.
