At Elmstead Wood, Power of Reading is at the heart of our writing lessons. This scheme has been proven to raise children's literacy achievement and meets all the requirements of the National Curriculum. Through engaging texts and a variety of writing genres, children use role play and let their imaginations run free to aid them when writing in accordance with the four main writing purposes:

  • Writing to inform
  • Writing to discuss
  • Writing to persuade
  • Writing to entertain
