The 10 Day Writing Journey

In Years 1-6, we use the '10 Day Writing Journey' to apprentice children into writing in different styles/genres/purposes.  This is a Trust wide approach to the teaching of writing developed by Green Wrthe Primary School in Sutton.

The 10 Day Writing Journey is a phased approach to writing which allows the children to immerse children in a) content knowledge, b) genre features and c) high quality examples.  Our curriculum mapping accounts for: teaching, rehearsal, forgetting, remembering and embedding within and across academic years.

Each unit will always focus on one of the 4 main purposes of writing, with an appropriate genre/task:

To entertain
narrative, poem, character/setting description, play script,

To persuade
speech, letter, advert, campaign

To inform
newspaper, report, recount, biography, essay

To discuss
balanced argument, newspaper, review
