At Wood Bank we love to write! We are here to inspire, support and develop your child as a writer. Writing is an essential part of the curriculum. At Wood Bank, we believe in the power of writing as a tool for self-expression, communication, and personal growth. Writing can be a therapeutic and empowering activity for our pupils, helping them to articulate their thoughts and emotions in a creative and meaningful way.

Our experienced teachers are trained to support students with various learning differences and disabilities in developing their writing skills. Whether it's through guided prompts, handwriting lessons, or creative storytelling, we aim to cultivate a love for writing in every student. We understand that each student has unique strengths and challenges, and we tailor our writing curriculum to meet their individual needs. For some children this maybe the early stages of mark-making, for example, using a paint brush and water on the floor outside, using messy play to make marks or using paint dabbers to create a picture. For other children this is developed through a high-quality text-based approach, allowing pupils time to explore the text. The teaching of spelling, grammar and punctuation is taught discretely and is also embedded cross curricular, allowing the pupils to develop their skills and feel confident to use them in their own writing.
