Writing

Overview

Writing at Parkfield is taught using 'The Write Stuff' approach by Jane Considine. We take our inspiration from a range of novels and texts. Our non-fiction witing links with our topic work, where appropriate. Each year we build on our skills and write a wide range of genres. The narratives that we write are many different kinds of stories.
