An example of a Year 6 child working at the 'Expected Standard'. The children wrote their own story in response to the text they were using, The Watertower, by Gary Crew.
'Nobody in Preston could remember when the watertower was built, or who had built it, but there it stood on Shooter's Hill -- its iron legs rusted, its egg-shaped tank warped and leaking -- casting a long dark shadow across the valley, across Preston itself.'
Another example of a child working at the 'Expected Standard'. Here, the children have written a diary entry from the perspective of a character in The Watertower. You can see that the child has tried to include the aspects of the dialect of the character in the book.
