Writing at Greenside

Welcome to the 'Writing' page on our school website. We hope you find the resources here useful to help you become the best writer you can be!


In school, we follow the Philip Webb ‘5-Phase Approach’ to Writing. Each unit of work starts with a 'hook' where you will make predictions about the text type you will be learning to write. Next, you will read a range of texts, including a WAGOLL text ('what a good one looks like'), to develop your understanding of the writing genre, with a focus on vocabulary. After that, you will identify the text features common to that the writing genre before practising the grammar, punctuation and sentence structures. Finally, you will be ready to plan, draft, edit and publish your writing. Each year, you will learn to write a range of genres such as narratives, recounts, persuasion, arguments, non-chronological reports and many more!
