Achieving, creating, building Greater depth in persuasive writing KS2 Year 3, 4, 5

This resource structures persuasive writing for your whole class. In the past I have used this a whole lesson and written each sentence as a class to really create an in depth piece of writing. I would ask the children for their ideas and they would collaboratively come up with ideas and then write down after sharing them with whole class. I have also cut the sentence strips out and allowed my higher attaining pupils to play around with the structure. This resource allows the lowers a structure to follow and the opportunity to write without worrying about content and structure. I hope that you enjoy using this resource and that your children’s writing is wonderful! Many thanks

These support learners to take boring sentences, changing vocabulary and sentence structure step-by-step to create a much more ambitious version. Ideal end of term activity in pairs to celebrate variety and creativity in sentence writing. Students love competing and supporting each other to create ambitious sentences with this resource. HIDDEN WORD PUZZLES: Editing and Proofreading Puzzles Worksheets for fun SPaG revision. Originally designed for KS2 Year 5 and 6, use for starters, early finishers activities, homework tasks, SATs practice etc. Fun alternative to standard worksheets with minimal preparation required (ideal for busy start of term).

Full answer keys provided. 2 PDF files are included within the Zip file. One file contains all 6 puzzles and answer keys with a pastel background, which can be printed in colour or in greyscale and could support some learners to view the sentences more clearly.

If being completed by a larger group, I suggest printing in A3 if possible but it works well in A4 too. It best suits 8 to 12 year olds (Key Stage 2 / KS2 or early KS3). It’s ideal for World Book Day, any other celebration of reading and authors or for some literary fun at the end or start of term. Alternatively it could be used as an early finisher activity that students / groups could come back to over a few lessons / weeks.
