Brooklands’ approach to building our young learners’ skills in writing goes across the curriculum. Cross curricular writing provides the perfect opportunity for our children to write for a purpose and practice their language and writing skills. Here at Brooklands cross curricular writing is used in all year groups across the school, giving children a chance to write using their knowledge of topics and events. Staff carefully plan for extended writing opportunities which are engaging and are exciting for all our children.
We regularly see giant alien footprints appearing on the floors and walls or superheroes dashing through the corridors to help captivate pupils and spark their imagination for writing.
Children at Brooklands are also encouraged to take pride in the presentation of their work and children learn correct letter formation when they join us in Early Years.
Each child in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 has access to Spelling Shed which is an online spelling programme which helps them to practice their spelling in a motivational and engaging way. Our children also take part in exciting events such as school wide Spelling Bees.
