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 narrative, retelling a religious story that they are familiar with. This could be used within RE, with pupils retelling a story from the unit that you are currently studying, or have recently studied. They will need knowledge of a religious story to use in their writing.
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.
