At Ley Hill, we are passionate about creating a love of writing. There is much evidence to show that a child who learns to read, and love reading, has a greater chance at becoming a successful writer. We believe that reading is at the heart of becoming a great writer, which is why we ensure that our pupils have access to a wide range of books and genres. Reading ensures that pupils have access to a wider vocabulary and sentence structure that will then transfer into their writing. Through first quality teaching of writing, and by the use of books in our lessons, we aim for all our pupils to become confident and avid writers.
Please see the attached action plan that shows what we are currently doing to support this vision in our school:
