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 persuasive piece of writing about keeping healthy. This could be used as part of a science unit on keeping healthy or the human body. Pupils will have the opportunity to write persuasively, choosing the form of writing that they will use – for example a letter, leaflet or report. Pupils will have the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of living healthily and will need some knowledge of how to keep clean and how diet, exercise and sleep can affect health..
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.
