An example of a Year 6 child clarifying. You can clearly see the progression of thought linked to the skill of clarifying.
This child is rehearsing the skill of summarising using an extract of text about Coral Reefs. It is always a challenge for the children to succinctly sum up a paragraph but this child has shown that she is making good progress towards being able to do this.
This activity focuses on a range of skills and challenges the child to reflect on the choices the writer has made around structure and word choice.
