Writing at Portsdown Primary School

At Portsdown, we believe that all children can be successful and develop into confident writers. From Reception to Year 6, we ensure that the children practise the key skills of phonics, spelling and grammar through purposeful and engaging writing opportunities.


We use great quality texts, real life experiences and the children's own interests to foster a love of writing.

*The School's approach to handwriting with some ideas on                                      how to practise this at home


*Ideas for writing activities at home


Please ask your child's teacher if you need any help with supporting your child's writing at home or if you have any questions. We are always happy to help you.
