Walker Primary School Inspiring a love of learning in a supportive community

Literacy

Writing

 

Pupils are expected  be able to write down their ideas with a reasonable degree of accuracy and with good sentence punctuation. The aim is for your child to develop as a writer,  enhancing the effectiveness of what they write, expressing their ideas through increased evidence of grammatical conventions, with more varied vocabulary and narrative structures and beginning to understand how writing can be different from speech. Joined handwriting is expected to be the norm.

Year 3 are enjoying reading, ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’.

 

Our aim is to create and describe our own magical land.

 

Below is a link to The Enid Blyton Society. Here you can explore her many successful books and Enid Blyton herself!
