The National Curriculum Level Descriptors for KS3-English (Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening) they are child friendly. Adapted from Herts, teachit, everywhere...
Not wildly proud, just conscious of need to put back
This is a pupil friendly sheet explaining the levels for each of the 3 attainment targets for MFL using 'I can' statements. I give this to the pupils at the beginning of the year. It does not include any reference to tenses as these are not stated on the Welsh NC.
I just put the wording onto big A4 posters. I hope the formatting transfers OK for all of you. I have put those on the wall so that everyone can see where they are. Hope it is helpful to someone out there.
These sheets were designed to go at the back of sketchbooks and pupils colour in their termly progress up the sub-levels. They are intended for use with the four strands of NC levels but can be used if you use just one overall level too.
The reason for the strange splits is that lower ability students find it easier with a smaller range of levels and descriptors to process. The level descriptors have been simplified as much as possible so that students can see how they can reach the next level. Sorry no Level 8 Exp Per yet...
Full resource for teaching the unit that leads up to a levelled essay on the above topic. http://www.qca.org.uk/history/innovating/key3/planning/case_studies/case03/case03_yr7.htm#a considers this key focus question, although suggestion by QCA is of role play so understanding generated by speaking and listening exercises which then lead to written work. This is alternative.

This lesson is an introduction to the mystery of the Tolland Peat Bog Man and what happened to him. This lesson is designed to get younger KS3 pupils questioning evidence. They have to make a decision as to whether he was murdered, committed suicide or it was an accident. Pupils should work in pairs and the teacher drip feeds the information gradually to encourage pupils to form opinions and have them challenged. They then can present their decision to the rest of the class using the evidence.
Contains three worksheets, full lesson plans and a fully animated Powerpoint presentation like a news report.
