“When I read great literature, great drama, speeches, or sermons, I feel that the human mind has not achieved anything greater than the ability to share feelings and thoughts through language.”
James Earl Jones
Our Writing Intent
All children will leave Overchurch Infant School with competence in the two dimensions of writing: composition and transcription. Children form, articulate and communicate their ideas and organise them coherently for a reader whilst developing an increasingly wide knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. Children develop a fluent, legible handwriting style and are able to spell quickly and accurately through learning the relationship between sounds and letters. Our teaching sequences enable children to take their words from their mouth, down their arm and on to their page.
