These four pieces of work show that this pupil can produce pieces of writing that have a sense of form (AF2) and that are appropriately adapted to audience and purpose (AF2). The responses have some shape (AF3) and their structure is supported by rudimentary paragraphing, with a little development built around the initial sentence (AF4). However, the development of ideas and materials (AF1) in each piece is limited so that the level 4 criteria are not securely met. There is some evidence of sentence variation and the use of a range of connectives, including adverbials (AF5), but in all these respects the level 4 criteria are not securely fulfilled. Vocabulary is rarely chosen for effect (AF7) and punctuation (AF6) extends only to the generally accurate demarcation of sentences and the use of inverted commas for direct speech. Within the limitations of the range of vocabulary, spelling (AF8) is usually accurate.
For AFs 1 to 6, there are three judgements at level 3 and three at level 4. This means the collection does not quite meet the minimum requirements for level 4 but does meet them, more than securely, for level 3. The criteria for level 3 are fully and consistently fulfilled across a range of evidence and some level 4 criteria are also met, so the overall judgement is high level 3.
