The task exemplifies the writing demands of the English curriculum working towards level 2.
In their reading, the students in this year 3 and 4 class explored how authors describe specific characters. The students were asked to include aspects of what they had learnt about character description in their writing. The writing task was to describe a character, using adjectives and similes. The student has undertaken this writing largely by himself.*
The following example illustrates the sorts of writing that teachers can expect of students who are meeting the standard. 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.
