Years 1 -6 writing self-assessment sheets

Years 1 -6 writing self-assessment sheets

These sheets cover the writing descriptors for years 1 / 2, years 3 / 4 and years 5/ 6. They are written in language aimed at the pupils and suitable for self-assessment of writing. I don't recommend being a slave to the assessment criteria - setting great, creative writing tasks is the best approach. However, these may be useful when pupils are taking responsibility for what they need to work on, what they could set as personal targets and where they can be proud of their progress.
