At Hill View Junior Academy we aim to enable our children to become writers, to encourage confidence and the motivation to want to write. We strongly believe that through widespread reading for enjoyment we can promote high standards of writing. We aim to develop writing skills so that our children become fluent, ambitious and creative writers, able to produce outcomes that reflect of a wide range of text types. They will be able to structure and organise their writing to suit the genre they are writing and include a variety of sentence structures and writing techniques to include detail and description. We are passionate about vocabulary and teach our children the skills needed to acquire a wide range of sophisticated choices that help enhance their written word. Ultimately our goal is for our pupils to become independent and creative writers who are able draft and edit their writing to a high standard.

Spring Term Writing
During the last half term, our children have been getting stuck into a wide selection of novels and non-fiction topics that have inspired their writing. Everything from The Nowhere Emporium and Paddington to the Iron Man and A Long Walk to Water have all been used as exciting hooks to stimulate our work. Take a look through some of our classroom displays and writing outcomes below.
