Whole school quality texts

READ as a Writer, WRITE as a Reader


‘READ as a Writer, WRITE as a Reader’ is our whole school quality text-based approach to English lessons. This involves planning an engaging English curriculum using a wide range of high-quality texts for each year group every half-term. We have designed an English curriculum that is centred around both classic and long-standing much-loved books and novels as well as new and exciting modern authors and texts. We’ve invested in bringing in a range of quality texts, including buying whole class sets of books and novels that each class are studying.


Part of our whole-school approach will be to immerse in their class texts, exploring the way the author uses language and to explore this to develop our children as writers. There is a wealth of research to show that one of the most effective ways to become a good writer is to be an avid reader; to unpick language from books and use this as a model for quality writing.
