Wentworth CofE Junior And Infant School

Part of White Woods Primary Academy Trust

At Wentworth we use a novel to drive igniting our writing, we focus on one novel/text for an extended period of time allowing
considerable in depth analysis where we:

● Learning through collaboration and play
● Applying critical thinking skills and higher order thinking 

● High focus on language analysis, sentence and word level choices (close reading)
● Developing an understanding of thematic development alongside structures (plot, character, setting,chronology, context)

All genres of writing are developed through the novel where writing develops holistically as a natural and meaningful response to reading providing a quality and range of responses to reflect a deeper understanding of language and context. Our teachers have all engaged with a CPD Writing Project led by Humberstone Academy, winners of the UK Literacy School of the Year.
