We want every child to be able to speak, write and spell confidently. By the time they leave us, children are confident communicators, ready for the next step in their education journey, and the modern world around them.
At Unity we believe talk is a crucial skill which prepares children for writing. We lead by example, using language correctly, and encouraging children to be precise in what they say and to use more complex sentences. We set talk homework that gives families a way to discuss what their child is learning at school.
We use the Talk for Writing approach to engage children and develop their skills.
We support children to develop good spelling, grammar and composition skills, and help children to edit their own work. All children have the chance to practise their handwriting, and develop neat, legible, joined handwriting.
