Eastgate Academy Literacy Curriculum
At Eastgate Academy we ensure that our pupils develop a love of words and enjoyment in crafting their writing. Pupils are taught robust vocabulary, as this enhances their ability to think critically and communicate with precision.
Fluency in writing is achieved through the essential competency in phonics, grammar, spelling, punctuation and handwriting. These corner stones of the writing process allow our pupils to plan, revise and evaluate their writing effectively. Our pupils employ these skills to organise their ideas to match audience and purpose. We aim for every child to be able to express themselves with confidence and pride through the written word.
