‘My heart overflows with a good theme;

I address my verses to the King;

My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.’

Psalm 45:1

We absolutely love writing at St Catherine’s! Our writing is often celebrated with Headteacher’s awards.

At St Catherine’s, we follow a book-based learning approach. Each year group looks at a variety of texts to help inspire writing. These books are mostly linked to the topics they study in History, Geography & Science to make links to the wider curriculum. Please see below our whole school English Overview which shows the books, topics and text types studied in each year group.

The teachers and students at St Catherine’s love using books to inspire writing.
