Do you have enough independent writing to assess your year 6 pupils against the writing Teacher Assessment Framework for the end of Key Stage 2?

Plazoom has created a selection of writing activities linked to the foundation subjects to provide opportunities for cross-curricular writing.

In this writing task, pupils are asked to write a letter of complaint about a faulty product (a game). This could be used within a design technology unit, evaluating existing products, before creating their own.

Year 6 writing checklists with TAF statements can be used to assess pupils against the year 6 writing standards for working towards, expected and greater depth, which could be used for internal or external moderation.

This resource pack includes:

  • Personal writing skills checklist: for pupils to write their own writing checklists to encourage independent editing
  • Formal letter writing skills checklist: a list of features, without modelled examples, for pupils to use as a checklist for editing writing
  • How to write a formal letter poster: a poster for display with the key features of a formal letter
  • Using the subjunctive form posters: a series of posters to display explaining the subjunctive form
  • Game image cards: a collection of images to inspire writing
  • Collecting ideas: a PDF worksheet for pupils to record initial ideas for writing
  • Formal letter planning sheet: to support pupils when planning and organising their ideas
  • Themed writing paper: a PDF writing sheet for pupils to use when writing their final draft
  • Teacher assessment sheets: for teachers to use to assess pupils against the year 6 writing TAF statements which could be placed in pupils’ books as a record of evidence seen
