Hoylandswaine's Subject Stories

Subject stories are unique to Hoylandswaine and are central to our broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum offer.  They give our vision for the subject area throughout school. We have a bespoke subject story for each area of the curriculum, which has been written by the subject leader based on the aims of the National Curriculum. A subject story sets out our intent in that subject and what we as a school aim to offer every child to ensure that they succeed. They share how the subject is delivered and what you would expect to see in a typical lesson, with the resources that we have available. 

Hoylandswaine Primary School Knowledge Web for Writing 2021/22

Our knowledge webs show how we carefully sequence our learning over the years in school so that pupils build up their knowledge of important concepts. The plans help us to ensure that all subjects reflect the scope and ambition of the national curriculum.

EPIC Writing

At Hoylandswaine we use the same structure throughout school when teaching writing - we call this EPIC writing!  We believe by delivering the writing curriculum it creates excitment and a purpose to write, whilst at the same time exposing our children to a vast range of quality authors from all genres.  The powerpoint below outlines the EPIC Writing structure in more detail.
