At Ryarsh, we aim to develop high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong understanding of the spoken and written language, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
Teaching of explicit skills and targeted activities develops pupils’ spelling and handwriting. Children are then supported to apply their new skills into their speech and writing. As part of every genre, pupils are taught how to plan, revise and evaluate their writing.
One Page Summary
Our one page summary document provides an overview of how we teach reading at Ryarsh Primary School. It is based on our overall curriculum intent statement (which can be viewed by clicking here).
Writing is a life-skill and an essential part of enabling children to express themselves, both as learners and as individuals. As humans, we have an inbuilt need to make our mark. We write to express ourselves, to find meaning, to change the world or to create an entirely new world. At Ryarsh Primary School, the teaching of writing is a thorough, well developed and thought-out process. The following Handwriting Progression document lays out how we will approach the teaching and progression of handwriting across the school considering a child’s development.
