At CHPS students are systematically and explicitly taught the fundamentals of writing from letter formation,  handwriting, spelling, sentence construction and paragraphing through to complex writing. During writing lessons, students are involved in a range of writing experiences linked to their learning including modelled, shared, and independent writing. 


 Within writing lessons teachers:

  • provide direct and explicit instruction in order to improve our students as writers
  • ensure students write across a range of genres and for different purposes
  • give regular feedback
  • use consistent school-wide approaches to writing.
