I've gone through the mark schemes and pulled out key points for children to check for to be sure of securing a level 4 or level 5. I've separated it into three strands (as in the long writing) so that the children get the idea that they need to get everything in a particular group to secure the marks. Hope you find it useful! Level 3 now added.

    Thank you. Although we don't have SATs here in Australia, this is a very useful checklist for any Year 6 teacher to go over with their students.

    Child-Friendly and useful to get children to progress their own writing in a lot of key areas. Thank you!
