Using the Cornerstones Long Term plan we plan the writing genres around the main topic. So for example when the topic is 'I am Warrior' children will look at playscripts and letter writing, linking to their knowledge of Romans.

Spelling Punctuation and Grammar will be taught alongside reading and writing, this may be done at the start of the lesson or as an entire lesson dependent upon children's understanding. Children will be taught the skills, view examples in texts and then apply them in their writing. 

Children also have their Spelling Zapper books which contain a list of spellings that they should know by the end of year 4/6. Children should bring the zapper books home regularly and learn them, enabling regular tests to be taken and applying their spelling knowledge within their writing.
