Lion Learning Pathways

Writing

Our approach to Writing is to provide systematic coverage to support assessment, through a structured approach that supports exemplification and moderation - and a consistency of teaching across all settings and abilities.

At Lion, a language-rich English curriculum is at the heart of all our learning and is the key to every subject we teach.

This belief in the importance of English creates a sense of subject identity, and a drive to be consistent and collaborative in the way we teach it across our schools. In writing, we focus on:

  • Developing basic skills and delivering those through a range of genres.
  • Structuring and sequencing learning so that children make rapid progress.
  • Building stamina for writing through regular and meaningful opportunities to write.
  • Ensuring children are clear about the purpose of their writing and the audiences they are addressing.
  • Giving children assessment proficiency, which helps them to edit, evaluate and improve their work.

Curriculum maps bring the learning journey to life

What am I learning? How does it relate to what I learnt last year and to what I'm going to learn next year? Our learning pathways graphically set out the whole subject curriculum and bring the learning journey to life for every learner, in each year.

Assessment sheets for every lesson

For every lesson in every subject, the Lion Pathways Curriculum provides end-of-topic or end-of-module assessment sheets to print off and capture both pupil and teacher feedback for that piece of work. By actively tracking each learner’s views in a consistent and systematic way, it ensures their voice is heard and recorded, a core part of every element of the teaching and learning cycle.
