Our learning


At Cleeve Prior CE Primary School we use the 'I am a Clever Writer approach' to the teaching of Writing.This is based on a progression of knowledge across Year groups that results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills so that all children know more, remember more and understand more.

Teaching sequences are carefully planned to ensure opportunities for consolidation and the development of a skill relating to the Clever Writer Checklist.

 In order to ensure that skills are taught effectively, and that progress is achieved, we use the 'I am a Clever Writer' Progression in skills documents for both genre and skills as well as the assessment checklists. These checklists have been created by reviewing the content of the National Curriculum to create an age-appropriate set of skills to ensure that key writing skills are taught and developed over-time to achieve rapid progress.
