Writing Grammar and punctuation Grammar and punctuation are taught or practised on a regular basis throughout Key Stage 1 and 2. The Literacy Tree teaching sequences are often used to support lessons within the classroom. These teaching sequences comprise of a series of engaging and challenging lessons centred on a piece of high quality text. In these lessons, new learning is introduced and skills are practised within the context of the text. To find out more you can visit their website: www.theliteracytree.co.uk. Text structure, composition and effect (articulating ideas and structuring them) Here the emphasis is on clarity, awareness of the audience, purpose and context. In the Early Years children use role play and other contexts to write for real purposes in the classroom and outdoor area. They use play to think creatively and imaginatively and they recreate roles and re-tell narratives. They enjoy writing sentences and simple texts and sharing it with an audience. In Key Stage 1 and 2 children use talk and drama to share, plan and explain their ideas and understanding. High quality text and real experiences, such as trips, are used to inspire writing. Children explore texts to learn about the features of different genres and collect vocabulary. Writing is modelled on the board by the teacher and children talk about what makes their writing successful. Pupils are encouraged to discuss and improve their writing and take responsibility for the editing process in order to take pride in their work and produce good quality final drafts. Writing is often published and celebrated, through sharing it with other classes and audiences and through display. We hope this information is useful and helps you support your child with reading  and writing at home. If you have any concerns or questions please speak to your child’s class teacher.
