Writing at Chesterton 

Our Branches of Writing 

  • Create a purpose for writing with an awareness of the audience  
  • Exposure to high-quality literature (read as a writer, read as a writer, write as a writer) - develop them as citizens / diverse texts / respect tolerance  
  • Develop creativity through a love of writing 
  • Cultivate the mechanics of writing (spelling, handwriting) 
  • Demonstrate perseverance and stamina (link to 5 stages of writing) 

At Chesterton Primary School, we follow a book-based writing sequences. Within each unit of work, the children are exposed to high-quality texts that engage, challenge and support our children to become critical readers, confident and informed writers. We provide opportunities for purposeful writing with a range of exciting shorter, longer and extended writing outcomes.
