An important pre-curser to writing is spoken language. The use of spoken language show children's level of understanding and is an important skill to develop. Being able to say it helps children to write it!
KS1 and KS2 both follow a writing journey which builds up skills towards a final piece of written work. Children edit and redraft this work to make improvements. Take a look at our writing journey below. Our spoken language and writing progression grids are also here.
