Oak Tree Primary School



At Oak Tree Primary School, we predominantly use DEAL as a strategy to support writing. DEAL strategies will be used to engage children when a new writing unit is introduced. Using strategies that promote dialogue and discussion, new vocabulary will be introduced in a purposeful context that allows children to understand its meaning with purpose. In order to develop imagination and creative responses within the children, teachers will facilitate a range of strategies throughout a writing unit to strengthen the children's ideas in independent writing. Allowing the children to drive the decision making within the drama, enables them to move the learning on in a way that is both personal and purposeful to them.
