Bottle Submarine (Writing)

By the end of year 6, 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.

The students in this year 6 and 7 class are evaluating aspects of a science and technology unit that they have completed. As they write about and discuss what their group has done during the unit, they explore the success they have had, both in developing and testing their prototypes and in working collaboratively as a group.

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.
