Writing Intent Statement

At Thurlby Community Primary Academy, we recognise the importance of nurturing a culture where children can write clearly and accurately, take pride in their writing and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts.

We provide all children, from Foundation Stage to Year 6, with many opportunities to develop and apply their writing skills across the curriculum. This exposure, to a variety of curricular areas, encourages a range of writers and writing styles and captures the curiosities of all learners. We are passionate about immersing children in vocabulary rich learning environments. Children at Thurlby Academy are taught a wide range of vocabulary and grammar within a creative and continuous English curriculum. We are intent on our students leaving primary school with a certainty that they are able to communicate effectively, through writing, and to enjoy being able to express themselves in this way.
