Moston Fields Primary School

Literacy

At Moston Fields, we aim to create 21st century learners, who will be successful in their future field of work. To fulfil their potential, pupils need to be able to communicate confidently through writing and speech; they must listen carefully and be able to understand the written word. All members of our school community support the drive to raise standards of literacy by having consistently high expectations in all areas.There are many exciting changes to our Literacy curriculum delivery at Moston Fields this year.

 

Writing

This year, we begin our participation in The Primary Writing Project. Over the next two years, in collaboration with other local schools we will be developing a Talk 4 Writing approach across the while school. We are confident that we will raise our writing outcomes across school.Talk 4 writing helps to:

 

  • Build children’s repertoire of stories and understanding of story structure
  • Enable pupils to become more active learners
  • Give pupils the tools to become confident and passionate writers.

Handwriting

 

To support our Talk 4 Writing project in school we are having a big focus in handwriting, concentrating on correct letter formation using lead-outs (flicks!) and lead-ins and eventually using a fully fluent cursive style. We are really proud of children's efforts in their writing so far and have noticed huge improvements since the beginning of term. Have a look at some samples of our progress so far!
