Writing Curriculum Expectations

  • write for a range of purposes and audiences, and mostly select language that shows good awareness of the reader (e.g. clarity of explanations; appropriate level of formality in speech writing)
  • in narratives, describe settings, characters and atmosphere
  • begin to convey character and advance the action through dialogue, maintaining a balance of speech and description
  • select vocabulary and grammatical structures that are appropriate for the audience and purpose (e.g. correct sentence types; tenses; a range of verb forms; relative clauses)
  • use a range of devices to build cohesion within and across paragraphs (e.g. conjunctions; adverbials of time and place; pronouns; synonyms), in much of their writing
  • use verb tenses consistently and correctly throughout most of their writing
  • use the range of punctuation taught up to and including Y5 mostly correctly (e.g. commas separating clauses; punctuation for parenthesis)
  • spell correctly words from learning in previous year groups, and some words from the year 5 / year 6 spelling list, using known spelling strategies and dictionaries to check the spelling of uncommon or more ambitious vocabulary
  • write legibly, fluently and with increasing speed.
