Writing in EYFS and KS1

Early writing in EYFS and KS1 taught through Read Write Inc. The children are taught to use the sounds that have learnt in reading to write words and then progress onto writing sentences. The children’s writing is very closely linked to their reading level to allow them time to embed the sounds that they have been learning.

Talk for Writing Across the Whole School

At Illogan we use the Talk for Writing approach to teach writing across the whole school. Please see the link below to find out a little more about Talk for Writing.

Below are some examples of story maps that the children have used to learn and then write their own stories.


In KS1 and KS2 the children have spellings to practice and learn in school and at home. We use the Spelling Shed scheme. See below for a link to the Spelling Shed website.
