At St Germans School our intent in writing is for pupils to be able to write and spell at age appropriate levels, following age-related expectations. We want our pupils to be exposed to a variety of literature, genres and authors. Through these experiences we want our pupils to write for a variety of purposes and audiences clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style as required. We want our pupils to be confident when writing and to be able to read their work easily, fluently and with good understanding. Our pupils should develop an understanding of grammar and punctuation and acquire a wide vocabulary, developing the confidence and ability to use these appropriately.
