Cross-curricular writing is used in all year groups across the school, giving pupils a chance to write using their knowledge of topics and events. Staff carefully plan for extended writing opportunities which are engaging and exciting for our pupils. 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. Pupils at Brooklands are encouraged to take pride in the presentation of the work and pupils learn correct letter formation when they join us in Early Years. We celebrate writing and pupils’ progress weekly through our ‘Writer of the Week’ awards.
