Writing at East Farleigh

At East Farleigh we follow an exciting approach to the teaching of writing. This approach is based on the work of Jane Considine and is called The Write Stuff.


We aim to develop proficient, accurate and creative writers through a rich and broad curriculum. By the time children leave our school, it is our intention that they will:

  • Write fluently in order to communicate their ideas and emotions effectively

  • Have had many opportunities to develop and apply their writing skills across the curriculum

  • Be able to plan, revise and evaluate their writing

  • Have developed an awareness of audience, purpose and context

  • Have a strong command of English spelling patterns, vocabulary and grammar

  • Use fluent, legible and speedy handwriting

Full details about our approach to the teaching and learning of writing, including handwriting and spelling, can be found in our writing policy.


Here are some wonderful pieces of writing from our talented children.
