Babcock’s Sequences of Learning:Each year, the school will start their English learning with a whole school writing approach with a set theme across the school, which will be based on a stimulus such as a text, image or poem. The outcomes of the writing task will be carefully planned to meet the expectations of each year group, therefore each year group will produce a different independent piece of writing. This independent piece of writing will then be assessed to identify the next steps in the learning process and teachers will use this assessment to select the next sequence to be used in their class. This will be tracked on a whole school overview so it is clear what each year group is working on and why. Teachers will follow the provided sequences of learning planning but will annotate the planning to fit their cohort, e.g. with groupings and this will be readily available in the classrooms for monitoring. Each half term, the year groups will start with a set task which will then inform the next sequence to ensure a diverse range of writerly skills and genres are taught and embedded in the English curriculum.
