Literacy in action

At Pensans, our writing takes place for a real purpose, whether it be writing letters to ask for advice or help, stories that will be published or read by a wide audience or information texts to inform a genuine audience.  All our writing builds directly into our end of term outcomes and the children have the opportunity to see how their writing is received and its effect on the chosen audience.  In keeping with the immersive environments, children are encouraged to present their writing in a variety of ways, both handwritten and using technology.  Wherever possible, the teaching of grammar, spelling and punctuation are taught through 'active SPAG' and games and activities both inside and out.
