Writing at Waterside 

At Waterside, we encourage the children to become authors, crafting their own style to become fluent in writing.

Our children are taught a range of genres covering both fiction and non-fiction writing styles. The writing and reading curriculum is very closely linked as we value the importance of reading to aid writing.

Our children are immersed into the genres through a variety of texts, film clips, posters and books - and above all we encourage daily writing.

Your child will then publish their work giving them a sense of pride in their presentation.

They are encouraged to write independently for a sustained length of time using prompt mats, word mats and the working wall to help them.
