Writing at Ironville & Codnor Park Primary School 


We are keen for children to write with a clear purpose and audience and therefore follow Michael Tidd recommendations as outlined below to create our bespoke medium term overview which is linked to our topic areas.


This model of teaching Writing is built around the idea of longer blocks focusing on fewer things rather than trying to teach children 10 or more different ‘genres’ or ‘text types’ we believe it is better to focus on what those types have in common. It means that  we use 4 main types of writing across KS1 and KS2: Writing to entertain; to inform; to persuade; and to discuss.
