Shenton Primary School

Empowering and nurturing young minds to achieve excellence

Our aim is to provide for all our children, a stimulating, relevant and interactive environment in which they can enjoy being creative and purposeful writers, allowing them to confidently develop the skills to communicate clearly with a range of audiences and in different contexts.

We foster a text approach to writing throughout Shenton. The text is used to create meaningful contexts for writing fiction and non-fiction and is used as a stimulus for different forms of writing.


The long term plan below will indicate the books your child will cover this year.

Writing target sheets include age related objectives that children are expected to meet by the end of the academic year.

Teachers use the target sheets when assessing work, recording what a pupil can do and what they need to do to improve their work.

The target sheets demonstrate the progress a pupil makes across the year.

Learning to spell correctly is a key skill for developing competent writers.

At Shenton, children are taught to use a range of spelling strategies to help them spell accurately.
