Model Writing for Ages 7-12
Fiction, Non-Fiction and Poetry Texts Modelling Writing Expectations from the National Curriculum
Are you looking for excellent writing models to support teaching writing, punctuation and grammar from the 2014 National Curriculum? Model Writing for Ages 7-12 is a compilation of short, photocopiable texts including fiction, non-fiction and poetry that provides teachers with writing models for a wide range of genres, writing styles and topics while incorporating the National Curriculum obligations.
With stories ranging from historical accounts of the Vikings and the Blitz to a more sophisticated version of Little Red Riding Hood, and writing genres ranging from persuasive writing texts to newspaper reports, Model Writing for Ages 7-12 provides teachers with an example for every eventuality. The perfect aid for teaching writing, each text is accompanied by a table listing which statutory assessment criteria it includes, as well as a blank table for pupils to collect examples themselves.
This invaluable text is essential for upper Key Stage 2 and lower Key Stage 3 teachers, particularly literacy coordinators and all those who lack confidence with the grammatical concepts in a text.
