Thanks for sharing. I'm guessing the whole thing uses US English, as it also contains the word 'program'. I did change 'brought' to 'took'. However, I don't agree with the comment about the lions' cage. Any Y6 (non-ASD) child who gets anxious about the number of lions in the cage is going to have a tough time working on their own initiative in Y7. If they know there's a choice, great!
A new statutory test of English grammar, punctuation and spelling will be introduced for children at the end of Key Stage 2 from May 2013. This implements an important recommendation of Lord Bew’s independent review that writing composition should be subject to teacher assessment only, with the more 'technical' aspects of English - such as punctuation and spelling - assessed via an externally marked test.
A quick link to the latest materials for the year 6 spelling , punctuation and grammar test for 2013. it includes an initial powerpoint which could be used/adapted for inset for staff.
