Danesholme Junior Academy

English - Writing


Our intent is to provide a robust writing curriculum, that enables our children to become confident writers and communicators, who go on to articulate their ideas effectively in the wider world. We know that children’s life experiences vary greatly, and their confidence and ability to write competently, can have a direct impact on their life choices.  Acquiring and developing the skills to write fluently and legibly, impacts children’s progress across the entire curriculum therefore we recognise the necessity for a clear progression pathway throughout the academy.  


We follow the National Curriculum for English.

We use 'The Write Stuff', by Jane Considine, approach to teaching writing.  Teaching units are carefully mapped, have a sharp focus on vocabulary, grammar and literary devices, whilst using a range of quality texts.  We teach Kinetic letters to support handwriting.
