Looking for a template to support pupils when planning their writing in Key Stage 2?

These margin planners, covering a range of text types, are used within our Real Writing Units (link to RW page https://www.plazoom.com/model-texts ) in KS2. They can easily be glued into books, in the margin, for pupils to plan their work, or can be copied with space for pupils to note their ideas for writing as a worksheet.

A range of margin planners is included, covering fiction and non-fiction. An editable version in Word is also included for you to create your own bespoke margin planners linked to your units of writing.
