We aim to foster a love of writing as soon as children enter Wybunbury Delves. Our learning is holistically planned around quality texts. We aim to enable our children to consider themselves as 'writers', to encourage confidence and the motivation to want to write and to have sufficient control over the mechanics of writing to allow for skillful development of the writing process. We aim to develop fluency and legibility. We aim to offer a whole language approach so that pupils can learn to express clarity of thought and be able to manage language appropriately. We aim to set high expectations of children and to give writing a high profile in all its forms.
This year we have introduced Talk 4 Writing by Pie Corbett from Preschool to Year 6.
At Wybunbury Delves we use Read Write Inc programme to teach phonics. Please see our phonics page for more information.
Year 3 to Year 6 use No Nonsense Spelling as a spelling scheme.
