Writing in Year Six
Please find below the Year Six requirements for writing; children use these during any writing they produce in order to ensure they are improving their work and working at the correct level. As per the new curriculum, children must be achieving all yellow targets before moving onto green.
Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) in Year Six
Please find below the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Assessment Ladder for Key Stage Two. This is the material Year Six pupils must be confident with at the end of primary school, and is taken from the test framework.
Please find below lesson materials to practise the work we have been doing in GPS so far.
Simple, Perfect and Progressive Tenses
In the GPS test, children may be asked to write a verb (for example, 'to play') in the past or present progressive tense, which will end in '-ing'. For example:
I am playing (present progressive)
I was playing (past progressive)
They are also required to vary their tenses in their writing. To help us remember, we have practised a tenses rap:
Lastly, meet our class alot. He is a magical creature created when people forget that a lot is written as two words.
