Target Statements for Writing. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
This list of year-by-year statements has been drawn together from England's National Literacy Strategy Framework for Teaching with a particular focus on writing. It sets out an illustrative set of targets for each year from Reception Year to Year 6 in different aspects of writing. The statements also take account of the stages set out in "Progression in Phonics" and the criteria for marking writing in National Curriculum assessment at Years 2 and 6. The targets focus on the key aspects of writing that need to be addressed to raise standards. They are intended as a practical guide for headteachers in steering and monitoring the teaching of writing and should be used selectively in relation to the needs and context of each school in any of the following ways: to audit writing achievement in each year group; to set curricular targets for year groups and learning targets for children; as a steer for teachers' planning; to help focus teaching on key elements of writing; and as criteria for monitoring teaching and learning.
