“You make anything by writing.” CS Lewis

Learning to write is one of the most important things that a child at primary school will learn. Children use their writing skills in all other subjects of the curriculum. At St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School the highest priority is given to developing children’s skills as writers from the moment they enter school. 

For a child learning to write is a cognitively complex process because it involves: handwriting, grammar, spelling, punctuation as well as considering the audience we are writing for. 

Throughout their eight years at St Anne’s we encourage and develop children’s skills as writers so that they can confidently convey their ideas and feelings across the curriculum.


In order to ensure the coverage of statutory requirements for the National Curriculum we use Liverpool Spelling Programme. In conjunction with this children have access to Spelling Shed to support and practice key words.
