Writing and Spelling
At Bishop Gilpin, we aim to create a firm foundation for a lifetime of learning by establishing excellent early communication skills to enable all children to become fluent, confident and capable writers, speakers and listeners.
As writing is a key life skill, we promote daily writing opportunities so that children can successfully write for a range of audiences and purposes.
Further details about how we teach writing at Bishop Gilpin can be found in our Writing, Speaking & Listening Curriculum Aims document. An overview of which authors, texts and genres are covered in each year group can be found on our Writing Curriculum Overview.
Children are taught all the KS2 spelling rules by the end of year 5 and they consolidate their knowledge of these in year 6.
