Writing is a crucial part of our curriculum at Peakirk-cum-Glinton. By the end of Year Six we intend our children to have developed a love of writing and to be able to express their individual thoughts and ideas clearly and creatively through the written word. We encourage children to be authors in their own right, developing their styles through 'magpying' their ideas from other strong examples.  We intend for all learners to be confident to explore and present a range of text types by understanding the genre and key features, adding their own unique style and writing 'signature' to them. We also intend to create writers who can re-read, edit and improve their own writing, and enable pupils to be able to confidently use the essential skills of grammar, punctuation and spelling. At Peakirk-cum-Glinton, we set high expectations for all our children to take pride in their work and have a fluent, cursive handwriting style alongside allowing their imaginations to flourish.
