Pathways to Write

Pathways to Write is a proven methodology built around units of work which develop vocabulary, reading and writing skills through the mastery approach. The units, for use with pupils from EYFS to Y6, provide clear detailed lesson plans and resources, linked to high-quality texts to ensure engaging and purposeful English lessons. Effective teaching strategies to challenge greater depth writers are included within each unit of work.

Whole School - £1495 (+ VAT)

The whole school package includes 42 full units of work, six for each year group from EYFS to Year 6. Further documents within the package to support the effective implementation of Pathways to Write include: an overview of year group skills from EYFS to Y6, a document to guide the progression and tracking of skills, an overview of reading and spoken language and a progressive guide to genres. Plus writing opportunities for the application of grammar and punctuation and a long term curriculum map.

Mixed age planning - Now available

We have now developed a Pathways to Write package for schools with mixed age groups. This uses all of our Pathways texts on a rolling 2 year programme for Y1/2, Y3/4 and Y5/6. The units of work come with a detailed overview of objectives to support teachers in meeting expectations for mixed age classess.

The ‘Pathways to Write’ planning has provided us with a strong focus on the progression of skills within our writing. We have seen a strong rise in both staff confidence and pupil engagement through exciting texts this year. We highly recommend using these units.

‘Pathways to Write has transformed the way in which we teach English. Our children are more engaged, are writing more, reading more and love learning. It has also helped to ensure our English curriculum is progressive and takes on a mastery approach to developing writing, and we are seeing a real difference already.’

‘The planning already seems to be having an impact in our school after one term. The children are much clearer in what they need to include in their writing and I love the way the planning returns to teaching points to consolidate learning. The books are really engaging too and allow for lots of links with reading skills.’

The units have been invaluable this year for our staff. They have improved outcomes for the children by helping staff have a sharper focus on the relevant, necessary skills they need to master in each year group. An added benefit is the reduction in teacher workload!
