PDF lesson plan for KS2
Teachers and students often find KS2 formal written pieces difficult.
In moderation meetings and online forums, they emerge as an area of concern – particularly for our greater depth pupils.
Teachers are nervous about balancing independent writing with modelling and how to support children to maintain consistency with their formal writing.
The solution? Plan opportunities during the year for children to practise writing and speaking formally.
