At St Teresa's we have implemented the Literacy Tree Programme for English.
We aim for children’s writing opportunities to be meaningful and to feel authentic, ensuring that the audience and purpose is clear. We ensure coverage of the entire English Programme of Study for KS1 and KS2 for Writing, as well as meeting the needs of the statutory 2021 Early Years Framework. In many cases objectives are covered more than once and children have opportunities to apply these several times over the course of a year, as well as to consolidate prior knowledge from previous years. Teachers regularly model writing to demonstrate tone and levels of formality. Where necessary, planning sequences are adapted by teachers to ensure that our children are appropriately supported. They are based on a wide range of high quality and significant children's literature chosen to engage, challenge and support children to be critical readers and confident and informed writers.
