Year 3 Poetry Unit 2 – Shape poetry and calligrams
Pupil writing targets
These pupil writing targets have been developed to support effective teaching of writing, particularly in guided sessions or 1 to 1 tuition. They cover the key strands for the primary framework of Reading – strands 7 and 8; Writing - strands 9, 10 and 11. These key strands have been identified as having the greatest impact on writing and accelerating pupil progress. Teachers should select the most appropriate target for a pupil/pupils to address identified gaps in learning, based on effective AfL practice.
