At the heart of our English curriculum at Christ Church is a desire to inspire children by teaching writing creatively, placing high quality children's books, linked thematically, at the centre of our lessons. To develop confident, capable and enthusiastic writers, we understand the importance of giving pupils a purpose for their writing, demonstrating the power of effective communication and its potential to affect an audience or reader.
Our children will master four main writing 'purposes', developing and embedding key grammatical skills as they progress through the school:
Writing to Entertain
Writing to Inform
Writing to Persuade
Writing to Discuss
