We love writing at Haveley Hey and take pride in providing creative learning opportunities for our children.
We teach writing using a combination of the Talk4Writing model and a word banking and sentence stacking approach. We took part in the Primary Writing Project to further develop our skills and provision ensuring that our children have the best possible Writing provision.
Each half term children in KS1 and KS2 complete a non-fiction unit and a fiction unit, each unit usually lasts around 3 weeks. The children also engage in a poetry unit of work each year.
The units focus on imaginative, engaging and vocabulary rich texts which the children rehearse and internalise. Teachers spend time developing the vocabularly of children and giving them experiences to fully engage with their writing.
In years 3-6, we use Spelling Shed to support spelling at home. Your child will have been sent home with their username and password. Spelling Shed has personalised spellings to practise for your child. Children can enjoy playing a range of fun games to support their spellings and also join hives to have competitions with their friends!

There are lots of ways that you can help your child at home.
