'Why is writing important? Writing crystallises your ideas. It preserves them for others. It reveals the facets of your thinking. Good writing is creating a gem for others to discover.' Jane Considine
We are designing an exciting new writing curriculum, we will upload details shortly.
We use the Read Write Inc approach to teaching spelling which compliments and works in succession with our approach to teaching early reading.
At Heartwood, before we teach children to form letters correctly, we ensure that we develop their pre-writing skills: oral communication, developing an interest in reading, immersing in a print rich environment, being able to hold a pencil correctly and building strength in their hands. We follow the Read Write Inc approach to teaching handwriting.
