Writing at Langshott Primary School

At Langshott Primary School we have adopted ‘The Write Stuff’ by Jane Considine to bring clarity to the teaching of writing. Daily lessons follow a method called ‘Sentence Stacking’ which refers to the fact that sentences are stacked together chronologically and lessons are organised to engage children with short, intensive moments of learning which they can then apply immediately to their own writing.  The mechanics of writing are taught through sections of 'Demonstration Writing'. Through this method of teaching writing, children are equipped with the tools they  need to become confident and successful writers.
