    @misho did you know the national curriculum documents can be accessed online? You can also find some work samples for different standards of you are interested.

    And I'll repeat myself because it's really true - I do think he has lovely writing :-)
    I've just been googling it, thanks.

    Thank you. I appreciate you saying that, he's had a really tough time adjusting so hearing that makes me feel like he's making progress. Thanks.

    @misho but my sons writing is terrible even in year 4, he cannot get the natural flow of movement for writing. I think your sons writing is really quite good for year 1.

    I think year 1 to 3 in VIC they do narrative writing sorry it's year 4 that they start persuasive (DS did his last piece on iPads for year 4 kids). DD just has to write imaginative stories (year 1) as narrative whereas DS has to also write narrative but is now learning about "hooking" the reader in. They have to start in year 1 to use WOW words and they all have what's called a big write once a week - the older kids get given a prompt on the Monday so they can think about what they want to write (that started in year 3), the younger ones don't get a prompt they just write whatever comes in to their heads - DD is still stuck on mermaids!!
