At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we want our children to ‘Aim High’ and know that they have the ability to achieve anything they put their minds to. We aim to deliver an exciting, broad and progressive English Writing curriculum, which empowers children to communicate effectively and accurately in a range of contexts. This will enable them to gain transferable skills and resilience to live happy, healthy and productive lives and to play a valuable part within the school and the wider community. We believe that English is the heart of pupils’ learning and supports them in accessing the full curriculum successfully. We strive to support children to develop a wide vocabulary and enthuse and engage them with the writing opportunities offered. Our school values are central to all we do and, through our English curriculum, we encourage our children to be:
- Aspirational and responsible learners through short burst writing, use of the success criteria and personalised targets;
- Curious and enthusiastic when exploring model texts and trying out authorial strategies to improve their own writing;
- Honest and respectful when working with peers to discuss and develop ideas and in giving feedback to each other.
