At Barlow we aim to encourage confident, enthusiastic and skillful writers.One of the approaches we use is based on the work of Alan Peat (an independent literacy consultant and former teacher). We have been teaching specific sentence types to improve our whole-school consistent approach to the teaching of literacy skills. This progressive sentence based approach is a strategy we have introduced and evaluated. Through extensive moderation and pupil progress meetings, we have seen that it has had a positive impact upon our children’s ability as writers.
Each year group will be introduced to sentence types which form part of a progressive structure from Early Years to Year 6. The booklet outlines the sentence types your child will be taught, which will of course be adapted to suit your child’s needs.
