National Curriculum KS4: Writing

Pupils should be taught to:

  • write accurately, fluently, effectively and at length for pleasure and information through:
    • adapting their writing for a wide range of purposes and audiences: to describe, narrate, explain, instruct, give and respond to information, and argue
    • selecting and organising ideas, facts and key points, and citing evidence, details and quotation effectively and pertinently for support and emphasis
    • selecting, and using judiciously, vocabulary, grammar, form, and structural and organisational features, including rhetorical devices, to reflect audience, purpose and context, and using Standard English where appropriate
  • make notes, draft and write, including using information provided by others [e.g. writing a letter from key points provided; drawing on and using information from a presentation]
  • revise, edit and proof-read through:
    • reflecting on whether their draft achieves the intended impact
    • restructuring their writing, and amending its grammar and vocabulary to improve coherence, consistency, clarity and overall effectiveness
    • paying attention to the accuracy and effectiveness of grammar, punctuation and spelling.
