KS2 - Y6 - Writing Assessment - Working At The Expected Standard - Work Booklet - Unit of Work - NF
A mini unit of Non-Fiction Writing in Year 6 to support end of year 'Working At The Expected Standards' writing framework.

I used this as part of our writing week and yes, it worked very well. A great way of including a lot of targets in one unit of work. The targeted work helped children to reflect, continuously, on what is in their writing.

What's included: Introduction to careers presentation; QR codes for researching careers; work booklet, which includes supported examples for working at the expected standard in writing. The booklet also includes a planning section with an area to write three targets from the booklet for each career they choose to write about; additionally, an edit and re-draft section is included for marking against the working at expected standard. Children, then self-assess against the traffic light criteria grids to ensure they have included all of the 'Working At Age Related' objectives in their writing. Final draft booklets are included for writing in best. One booklet also includes handwriting lines for those children who need it.

The focus of this unit is on the following areas, direct from the end of KS2 writing assessment document:

• creating atmosphere, and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance
the action
• selecting vocabulary and grammatical structures that reflect the level of formality
required mostly correctly
• using a range of cohesive devices*, including adverbials, within and across sentences
and paragraphs
• using passive and modal verbs mostly appropriately
• using a wide range of clause structures, sometimes varying their position within the
• using adverbs, preposition phrases and expanded noun phrases effectively to add
detail, qualification and precision
• using inverted commas, commas for clarity, and punctuation for parenthesis mostly
correctly, and making some correct use of semi-colons, dashes, colons and hyphens
• maintaining legibility, fluency and speed in handwriting through choosing whether
or not to join specific letters.
