These bright and engaging worksheets encourage KS2 children to edit and improve their writing. They’ll revise and practise techniques for writing more ambitious and interesting sentences.

The sheets offer five different challenges to help KS2 children edit and improve their writing. These fall under the headings ‘understand’, ‘explain’, ‘challenge’, ‘test’ and ‘apply’.

These can be completed during a single lesson, spread over a number of sessions, or used for homework. The questions encourage creative responses as well as revision, and use interesting images to spark children’s imaginations.

This primary resource is divided into five sections:

  • Understand
    Look at the 10 dull sentences. After each one, improve it using any of the techniques from the box provided.
  • Explain
    Look at the pictures and write a sentence for each one. Can you find eight different ways to make interesting sentences?
  • Test
    Look at the pairs of text. In each one, the blue writing is an improved version of the green writing. After each pair, write how the blue sentences have improved on the green sentences.
  • Challenge
    Write two sentences about each of the pictures provided. Use your writing skills to create sentences as interesting as possible and impossible to improve.
  • Apply
    What is happening here? Write a story based on the picture. Try to use a wide variety of techniques to keep your writing interesting.
  • evaluate and edit by assessing the effectiveness of their own and others’ writing and suggesting improvements
  • evaluate and edit by proposing changes to grammar and vocabulary to improve consistency, including the accurate use of pronouns in sentences
