Writing Weeks

Writing weeks happen termly and are one of our schools many non- negotiable expectations.

They’re designed to ensure that every child has a new experience,whether building a shelter or visiting Eden Camp, the whole school learns together.

The week always begins with an introductory assembly and ends with a sharing event. The knowledge and skills can be drawn from any of the curriculum areas and are used to develop writing from a wide range of different genres.
