Lower key stage 2 – years 3 and 4

Pupils should be able to write down their ideas with a reasonable degree of accuracy and with good sentence punctuation. Teachers should therefore be consolidating pupils’ writing skills, their vocabulary, their grasp of sentence structure and their knowledge of linguistic terminology. Teaching them to develop as writers involves teaching them to enhance the effectiveness of what they write as well as increasing their competence. Teachers should make sure that pupils build on what they have learnt, particularly in terms of the range of their writing and the more varied grammar, vocabulary and narrative structures from which they can draw to express their ideas. Pupils should be beginning to understand how writing can be different from speech.

They should learn the conventions of different types of writing (for example, the greeting in letters, a diary written in the first person or the use of presentational devices such as numbering and headings in instructions).

Years 3 and 4 Writing Composition

Pupils should be taught to plan their writing by:

• Discussing writing similar to that which they are planning to write in order to understand and learn from its structure, vocabulary and grammar

• Discussing and recording ideas

Draft and write by:

• Composing and rehearsing sentences orally (including dialogue), progressively building a varied and rich vocabulary and an increasing range of sentence structures

• Organising paragraphs around a theme

• In non-narrative material, using simple organisational devices [for example, headings and sub-headings]

Years 5 and 6 Writing Composition

Pupils should be taught to plan their writing by:

• Identifying the audience for and purpose of the writing, selecting the appropriate form and using other similar writing as models for their own

Draft and write by:

• Selecting appropriate grammar and vocabulary, understanding how such choices can change and enhance meaning

• Using a wide range of devices to build cohesion within and across paragraphs

• Using further organisational and presentational devices to structure text and to guide the reader [for example, headings, bullet points, underlining]
