Writing Overview

At St John’s School we have a ‘Purpose for Writing’ approach. Rather than trying to teach children ten or more different genres or text types (which can actually be used for a variety of purposes), our approach focusses on what those different types have in common: the purpose for writing.

 The four purposes to write being taught across KS1 and KS2 are:

 • to entertain

• to inform

• to persuade

 • to discuss
