The Ram (Writing)

By the end of year 4, students are required to create a variety of texts in order to think about, record, and communicate experiences, ideas, and information across the curriculum. To meet the standard, students draw on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for writing described in the Literacy Learning Progressions for students at this level.

As part of their learning in English, the students in this year 4 class are writing to form and express ideas based on a significant personal experience. Each student is writing a recount of a scary experience that they think will interest and engage their audience.

The following example illustrates aspects of the task and text and demonstrates how a student engages with both task and text to meet the writing demands of the curriculum. A number of such examples would be used to inform the overall teacher judgment for this student.
