At Bedgrove Junior School we want to inspire all children to write by delivering an engaging curriculum with enthusiastic teachers, using Talk 4 Writing as a model. We aim to provide all children with the knowledge and tools needed to succeed in all genres of writing, in order to allow pupils to transition to secondary school as confident and well-rounded authors in their own right. We aim to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written language. Through the use of shared writing and teacher modelling we demonstrate the writing process so pupils learn the journey from gathering ideas, planning, drafting, editing and publishing. We also aim to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.  We strive hard to make sure English is a well-loved subject and that all members of Bedgrove Junior School speak highly of it. We also aim to challenge all pupils and provide opportunities for students to become creative thinkers who are able to produce high quality texts of their own.
