Writing

At West Ashton, we aim to give our children a writing curriculum which enables them to become confident, creative and independent writers who are well able to articulate their own ideas.
 
We support our children to develop transferable skills which they can use across the wider curriculum and throughout their lives. We use high quality literature, film, art and music, topics and educational visits as stimuli for writing which links learning to real life experience and provides a contextualised, meaningful curriculum.
 
West Ashton writers will leave with a strong independent writer’s voice and the technical skills necessary to communicate clearly in the modern world.
Words for life is a website designed for parents and carers to help get children excited about reading and writing.
