The aim of the extended writing pieces is to provide pupils with an opportunity to develop their literacy skills.
The skills are:
• using appropriate sentence forms
• writing for purpose
• using a range of different punctuation with accuracy
• appropriate paragraphing with a variety of openers
Below, you will find a shortcut to the literacy matrix which teachers use to mark and provide feedback on pupils.
When your child receives this feedback we would like you to encourage them to respond to their teacher comments using green pen.
Please follow the link to our extended writing calendar where each piece is set on a weekly basis in addition to smaller homework activities.
