Creative KS1 and KS2 writing resources and assessment

We know that you want to give every child in your school the ability to communicate clearly - to have access to the right vocabulary to express their ideas, to adapt their language to suit their audience, to write coherently and accurately.

To help you embed these writing skills at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, build your children’s confidence in the writing SATs paper and develop their love of language, we’ve put together a range of resources, support and practice tests for your school.
