KS2 Writing

There is no formal test for writing, your children will have worked hard all year and are already improving their skills. They will receive a teacher assessment that will be a score for the work they have done all year.
These are the age related standards the children are expected to achieve.

These are the words the children are expected to be able to read and spell correctly.

This is an example of a piece of 'age related' writing.

Greater Depth in Writing

How can you help?

  • Please ‘drum home’ the importance of capital letters and full-stops.
  • Keep practising spellings on weekly basis – the new LSCWC method is bespoke to your child and focuses on their weakness in particular.
  • Encourage your children to learn new vocabulary.
  • Practise handwriting if needed.
  • Value their homework – is it their best writing?
  • Use standard English.
  • Read, read, read, read and read some more with your child. It's vital.
