Genre Progression

To ensure children develop a strong knowledge of different genres, we have created a progression list of writing genres for St John’s Primary School. The purpose of this document is to ensure that children experience different types of writing in each year group. Children start in Year 1 by learning five different genres in-depth and then as they progress through the school, more genres are introduced, and previously taught genres are revisited to help support long-term memory. Therefore, by the time children reach Upper KS2, they can write a range of different genres with confidence because they have a deep understanding and knowledge of each type of writing style. Opportunities for these writing genres are also visited and produced within R.E, Topic, and Science lessons, where applicable.
