- Regular writing opportunities form an integral part of our learning and teaching strategy. As part of the five-phase lesson, teachers use relevant reading material to model 'what effective writing looks like'. Students engage with key subject vocabulary in every lesson and learn how to approach writing for a particular purpose through a process of planning, drafting and editing. Regular 'red zone' ensures that independent writing is practised across the curriculum to build students' writing stamina and proficiency.
- At Moor End we strongly encourage writing for pleasure and our students particularly enjoy challenging themselves with national poetry and creative writing competitions, delivered through whole class and after school enrichment as appropriate. For budding young writers, we often use competitions such as: Young Writers UK, BBC 500 words and Foyles Young Poetry competition as an engaging stimulus.
