'Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.' Malala Yousafzai
At Turnfurlong Junior school we believe that all children have the potential to become great writers, be able to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and be proud of their accomplishments. Our aim is to inspire a love of writing through exposure to exciting, stimulating texts and opportunities that ensure the progressive development of knowledge and skills and an appreciation of our rich and varied language. Writing allows for creativity and self-expression and we want our children to be confident in writing across a wide range of contexts and be able to adapt their language and style to suit those. We recognise the importance of speaking and listening as a key tool for developing writing and we have adopted approaches to support this. We have high expectations of all children and we encourage them to challenge themselves, believe in themselves and develop the confidence and skills to prepare them for their next steps.
