KS2 Interim assessment checklist - Writing * Now with child friendly ITAF sheet

Here is a checklist I have made to help assess children's writing against the new curriculum's expectations. Also a child friendly resource I use with our children during our writing sessions for them to make sure that they are including the features needed to meet the 'expected standard' in the new curriculum. Can also be used as a peer or self assessment tool or even by teachers to check that their children are writing at the expected standard. Please leave feedback. Hope it helps!
