Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Our writing curriculum is also enhanced through the use of quality texts that have been selected due to their relevance to our curriculum and also to the children’s interests. In this way, our children are taught to write in a variety of styles and for a variety of purposes that are both meaningful to them and exciting.  Our writing lessons not only promote a love for reading and writing but also develop the children’s imagination and creativity alongside their speaking and listening skills through our emphasis on drama to explore each writing outcome.  We use high-quality models and class discussion to explore and promote the correct use of spelling, punctuation and grammar so the children have a clear idea about how these elements can impact on their writing choices. We often use writing as a way for the children to publish their work in a range of innovative and well-presented ways that they are proud of and can share with others.
