Writing at St John Fisher
At St John Fisher we aim to provide a high-quality writing curriculum that is based on a rich text approach. We believe that books should be at the heart of writing, and we follow schemes developed by the Literary Curriculum, a team of writing experts and moderators to ensure that our students receive a well-rounded writing education.
Our writing curriculum is designed to develop a range of writing outcomes in each unit, with an emphasis on embedding grammar skills into extended writing pieces. Throughout the units, we teach and reinforce grammar skills, which are then used in the final piece of writing.
We also ensure that our writing curriculum is linked to our topic-led curriculum wherever possible. This provides our students with the opportunity to apply their writing skills in a range of contexts, making the learning more meaningful and relevant.
Our aim is to foster a love of writing in our students, equipping them with the skills and confidence to write effectively and creatively in a variety of contexts.
