These are margin sized checklists for children to include various Year 2 writing skills into any piece of writing. The children can tick off each one as they include them into letters, fact files, diary entries, etc. They can be suited to almost any type of writing and ensure that children evidence the essential skills needed to show Expected Standard or Greater Depth for end of KS1 assessment.

I’ve represented each skill with a symbol or words such as ‘bright, spotty butterfly’ for adjectives / an expanded noun phrase. There are examples of coordination/ subordination to include, tricky words, contractions, etc. The Greater Depth margin is differentiated by including joins, Year 2 suffixes and all of the punctuation taught so far inc possessive apostrophes.

This is a great resource that has pushed my class to show more skills within their writing and they really enjoy ticking each thing off with whiteboard pens. Just print, laminate, cut and enjoy!

Why is there 'SAMPLE' all over the GD sheet - stops me from using the first sheet. Expected level is ok. Please could you sort this out. Thanks
