At Chesswood we want to foster a passion for language and a culture of reading for all. Reading is the gateway to different worlds, new ideas and exciting ways to express ourselves through vocabulary. The following document underpins how we teach writing at Chesswood – we lead writing through text. Children throughout each year enjoy the experience of reading together through whole class novels and these provide the route to writing different genres. From one great text we can write blogs, diaries, dialogue, poetry, reports and more. The opportunities are endless. It is from this starting point that we strive for every child to have access to high quality texts and tasks where they can build on and celebrate communication.
