All our curriculum starts in our Foundation Stage click on the link below to see how we teach writing in EYFS


Writing is encouraged across the curriculum at Forestdale and we have high expectations on handwriting and presentation.  We want children to express their ideas and use their imagination when writing but to also think about the spellings and grammar they need to use.  We have the same expectations of writing across the curriculum.
