Writing

Writing at Mawsley CP School has always been a big focus of ours. Since implementing regular vocabulary sessions, Talk for Writing, and a new handwriting scheme (Kinetic Letters), it is plain to see the improvement and passion the majority of our children have for writing. They are able to produce fantastic pieces of writing using a variety of stimuli. Each year group has their own set of year group objectives (or 'non-negotiables', as the children know them) - these are the features we expect to see in all of their writing in order for them to achieve the expected year group level. Click on the year group below to access their  year group objectives.
