This Year 2 writing assessment resource pack provides the opportunity for KS1 pupils to produce cross-curricular writing that can be assessed against the KS1Teacher Assessment Framework (TAF).
Pupils will write a report about how telephones have changed since their grandparents (or even great grandparents) were young. A pupil writing checklist is provided to encourage independent proofreading and editing.
Year 2 writing checklists with TAF statements can be used to assess pupils against the Year 2 writing standards for working towards, expected and greater depth standards.
What is a report?
A report provides detailed information on subjects, events or about the way things are or were. Information is organised and/or categorised to help the reader. Headings and subheadings are often to organise the text. Reports can be non-chronological, where a piece of text is not written in time order.

Pupils should be taught to develop positive attitudes towards and stamina for writing by:
- Writing narratives about personal experiences and those of others (real and fictional)
- Writing about real events
- Writing poetry
- Writing for different purposes
Consider what they are going to write before beginning by:
- Planning or saying out loud what they are going to write about
- Writing down ideas and/or key words, including new vocabulary
- Encapsulating what they want to say, sentence by sentence
Make simple additions, revisions and corrections to their own writing by:
- Evaluating their writing with the teacher and other pupils
- Re-reading to check that their writing makes sense and that verbs to indicate time are used correctly and consistently, including verbs in the continuous form
- Proof-reading to check for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation
- Read aloud what they have written with appropriate intonation to make the meaning clear
