15 Year Five and Six example creative writing texts (Fiction & Non-Fiction - KS2)

(2)
Having trouble finding high-quality examples of Year 5 and 6 texts for children to analyse and aspire to? So did I! These texts were shared-written with my class over the course of a year and contain all of the grammatical features a Year 5 or 6 child is expected to have in their writing - including the Greater Depth statements. Examples of features include: Modal and Passive verbs Expanded Noun Phrases Prepositional Phrases The subjunctive Colons and Semi-colons between independent clauses Brackets, Dashes and Commas for Parenthesis Punctuating direct and indirect speech These texts were written to engage a reader and I’m confident they’ll engage your class. The 14 texts include: A biography of Michael Faraday A biography of Isambard Kingdom Brunel A Victorian short narrative A spy short narrative An information text about Volcanoes A description/explanation of a World War spy gadget Three dramatic recounts A newspaper article A dragon-themed factfile A non-chronological report of a fictitious creature

Complete KS2 May 2019 SATs Gap Analysis / Question Level Analysis (QLA)

3 Resources
A complete bundle of Gap Analysis Grids / QLA (Reading, GPS, Spelling, Arithmetic, Reasoning 1, Reasoning 2) for the May 2019 KS2 SATs assessments. I have also included links to the papers, the mark schemes and the conversion grids within each spreadsheet. These grids will save you many hours work and will help you quickly identify individual or whole cohort weaknesses in specific areas of the curriculum. The sheets are set up for 30 or 90 pupils but more can be added/deleted and instructions are on the first page/sheet. Some cells are locked/protected in this document but the parts that you need to insert yourself are editable. This is so that the formulas/algorithms do not break and render the spreadsheet’s functionalities as broken. Please read the description of each resource before purchasing. Please remember to leave feedback as I am aiming to build a reputation as a creator who aims to save teachers time and improve their effectiveness.

KS2 2019 SATs Maths Gap Analysis / Question Level Analysis (QLA)

(1)
These are excel spreadsheets Gap Analysis documents for the May 2019 Year Six SATs Papers for Maths (Arithmetic, Reasoning 1 and Reasoning 2). **The sheet totals up the scores automatically and each child’s final score changes colour to reflect their ability. If their total score for a subject goes green, it means they would have passed the 2019 SATs with that score. If it goes Purple with a white font, it means that child would have achieved a ‘More Able’ score for that tested subject.** I have also included an instructions and document page, linking to a freely available copy of each test, mark scheme and instructions. Additionally, I have included a link to the conversion tables from RAW Score to Scaled Score. All a teacher has to do is enter their children’s names and enter the 0’s, 1’s, 2’s or 3’s for each question, which also change colour too for a visual reference. I recommend that a teacher should enter ‘N’ if a child did not attempt that question. This gives an idea of who is not even attempting certain questions, not just whether they got the question wrong. The sheets are set up for 30 or 90 pupils but more can be added/deleted and instructions are on the first page/sheet. Some cells are locked/protected in this document but the parts that you need to insert yourself are editable. This is so that the formulas/algorithms do not break and render the spreadsheet’s functionalities as broken. This password will not be given out, but I am more than happy to make adaptations or changes for you, provided you show proof of purchase. All of my contact details are in the resource. I take requests for Gap Analysis Grids. Please leave feedback if you like this resource as I am planning to produce more for each SATs paper going forward, as well as CGP Practice Papers. Please remember to rate this resource as I made this to save teachers time. Thank-you.
