Key benefits of this approach to writing include:
- building children's confidence with their sentence structure
- widening the repertoire of writing options for children
- children being able to organise their ideas
- writing being more cohesive

Writing Subject Lead
Hi, I'm Mr. Mullins, the Headteacher and Writing Lead at Woodstone. I have always had a passion for writing which I think stems from winning a writing competition at primary school, way back in the old days! I absolutely loved writing stories and letting my imagination run riot. I also loved to read, so I know that definitely helped me to write better stories.
I am often amazed here at Woodstone by the brilliant writing I see happening in classrooms. It makes me grateful to be a Headteacher - I am lucky to have the opportunity to see children writing a few words when they join us in our Reception Class to writing pages and pages of high quality text by the time they leave us in Year 6.
Writing is another way for children to express themselves and that is what we are all about - encouraging children to be confident, resilient and hard working as they continue their writing journey.
