Written Expression

Written expression requires many skills

To write stories, recounts, assignments and essays, a student needs to be able to:

  • spell words quickly and accurately
  • use punctuation correctly
  • use a variety of sentence types
  • use appropriate ‘signal words’ such as firstly, for example, on the other hand and in conclusion
  • understand how different types of text are constructed (for example, a short story is constructed in a different way to a newspaper article)
  • organise ideas into an appropriate sequence
  • edit work carefully for organisation, grammar, spelling and punctuation.
