We aim to foster a love of writing as soon as children enter Wybunbury Delves. We aim to set high expectations of children and to give writing a high profile in all its forms.

From Reception to Year 6, we follow Ready Steady Write, by Literacy Counts.Ready, Steady, Write empowers teachers to provide high-quality teaching of writing through children's high-quality literature (Vehicle Texts).The units of work centres on engaging, vocabulary-rich texts, with a wealth of writing opportunities. Several of these carefully selected Vehicle Texts have strong thematic links to the Science, History and Geography curriculum. They are being implemented with great success because they include:

  • Clear Sequential Episodes of Learning
  • Example Texts (WAGOLL)
  • Learning Objectives that link to the teaching sequence (Immerse, Analyse, Plan, Write)
  • Vocabulary Learning
  • Contextualised Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation
  • Writer's Knowledge Linked to National Standards
  • Sentence Accuracy Work Linked to National Standards
  • Progressions Documents with Year Group Expectations
  • Reflecting on Unit Outcomes: Planning for Next Steps
  • Example Planning Format
  • Wider Reading for the Wider Curriculum
  • A Wealth of Resources Linked to the National Standards
  • Explicit Links to the National Curriculum

Read Steady Write is evidence-based teaching of writing. The units have been carefully mapped out so the entire statutory curriculum for writing is covered for each year group, making links to the wider curriculum, which support Wybunbury Delves' rich curriculum.

At Wybunbury Delves we use Read Write Inc programme to teach phonics. Please see our phonics page for more information. See our 'Phonics' and 'Reading' page for more information.
