2a in my opinion,with elements of level three. It's definitely not just a 2c!

I'd say 2b, with elements of 2a (and, indeed, some elements of L3).

This is a 2a writing with some elements of level 3. Correct use of punctuation would be the next steps for this child if she was in my class.

I wouldn't give a 2A based on that single piece of writing but that doesn't mean she isn't a 2A or higher on other pieces.

I would level it at a 2a+. I can see how it can tip over to a 3c. However, there is still not enough evidence for me to say 3c.

Incidentally, we did our writing moderation last week and it got pretty heated. It seems that, even using the same mark scheme, 7 teachers can't agree. We all had different things that 'made' a level. Not too reassuring, really!

I think it's a 2a. There are level 3 aspects but the lack of punctuation pulls it down, as does the flow. She's used 'when' as an opener, as well as 'so' as a connective. She's also included extended phrases and a few adverbs, although they are quite simplistic.

btw my ds is y5 and has just begun writing really interesting vivid stories, it's like it's all beginning to come together, meanwhile he also forgets capitals, speech marks etc - I am hoping to remind him of this but just now am rejoicing in his new found authorial competence

ok so it's lacking punctuation - it's half term so I'm not going to even try to level it (really irking when you have great content but insufficient ticks)
It's really vivid, I like it, well done! I'd carry on enthusing her as you are doing

I have known PARENTS who couldn't write as well as that !

'just a 2c' shock

I'm not a teacher but even I can see that it's more than 'just a 2c'!!

I'd also say a 3c. Definitely better than a 2c- although there are issues with tense and punctuation, the vocabulary and sentence structure pull it up.

It would depend how much support was given though, and what the child could do with other genres.

I also get the sense that your daughter is currently combining phonic representations of words with more a more visual sense of how particular words are spelt (lots of hard words are correct) which may well mean that she is getting close to the point where she will use conventional spelling in an age appropriate way.

Djwkin Sun 17-Feb-13 19:49:27

The run on sentences at the end and the shift of tenses (which give the action more immediacy) might just reflect the fact that your dd wanted to get the story finished. There is still paragraphing, and a beginning, middle and end. No less than 2a, with lots of level three and age appropriate language and phrasing. Tell her well done.

Don't think there is enough punctuation for a level 3, I am a hard leveller though!

Djwkin Sun 17-Feb-13 19:45:28

I disagree. Although there is some shifting of tenses and a slight over use of then and so as connectives, overall it reads as a 3c+ piece of writing. Although punctuation could be improved ( overlong sentences), the sentence structure is clearly more mature than an average year two/three and there is some lovely phrasing (glimpse of sunlight etc). The story is coherent, and spelling is phonetically plausible and recognisable in most instances (some work on the sh phoneme might not go amiss though). Definitely not a 2c though!
