L.O. To identify what makes a successful piece of Year 6 writing
Today we will look at what makes a really good piece of writing in Year 6.
We will look at the two pieces of writing below - one is a Greater Depth piece of writing and the other is Expected standard.
Have a read of both and make some notes on each with what you think makes them a good piece of writing, or better than the other piece of writing.
Then have a read of the annotated versions to see what actually makes them good, with the criteria annotated on them.
Year 6 Example Writing
How can we write our story and include some of the features of these pieces?
Look at the text (pages 11-13) again and look at the use of the words:
sudden, hideous, jumped, normally, restless, uneasy, leapt, alarm
All of these words give a sense of something strange, sudden and uneasy going on.
