Writing at Lozells
To ensure that our children are given a broad and balanced English curriculum, teachers plan units of work based around the topic they are studying in class. Throughout the year, our children are exposed to a plethora of writing styles and write in a variety of both fiction and non-fiction genres.

These lessons focus on particular features of a genre and give the children the opportunity to practice the skill being taught. These lessons are often based around word and sentence level work but may focus on skills such as cohesion or paragraphing.

The children are given time to write their independent piece.
This session will focus on reviewing and editing the children’s final piece of writing. This may be completed through self and peer assessment and will be modelled by the teacher.
