Newbie to the forum but have learnt a huge amount by reading through posts from different members. I am a bit confused and would appreciate responses on this
How are children expected to write instructions in the CSSE exam? Would it need to be bulleted or numbered? Does it need time connectives? Does it need headings? Do the materials need to be listed?
How are Children expected to fit in these within 5-6 lines in the CSSE paper? Are these marked irrespective of whether they follow the SATs paper guidelines or are these followed strictly?
Thanks in advance
Given that the mark scheme for the familiarisation paper mentions that punctuation is important, I would assume that proper sentences would be expected, rather than bullet points (unless your DC is really running out of time when complete instructions or whatever as bullet points rather than very incomplete pieces written in full sentences might be better). The section is labelled Continuous Writing, as well, which I would take to be a pointer.Continuous Writing 15 marks
This will be marked as one piece of work and the candidate will be assessed on accuracy,
spelling, punctuation, the quality of writing and originality.
