We ensure that all writing is based around high quality texts. Through daily writing lessons, children are immersed in the text being taught and are provided with the opportunity to engage with the text in creative and engaging ways.
Many children at Newhall have had exposure to exceptional experiences outside of school, which the curriculum aims to build upon and use as a springboard for inspired writing. However, we always ensure that context is specifically taught in school in addition.
