At Leavesden, we want children who enjoy writing simply because crafting with the written word can be a beautiful and powerful process. We want the children to be creators and effective communicators with the written word, inspired to expertly apply all of their skills and knowledge of writing to cause their readers to gasp in awe.
These skills include how to compose a text; how to organise ideas; how to select language to carefully express oneself; how to apply grammatical features for effect and to ensure the reader can read in the way in which was intended; how to form each letter with care and precision; how to spell words with accuracy to ensure our message can be translated to the reader. All of which form the basis of the writing curriculum at Leavesden.
