This resource can be used for self or peer editing in a Key Stage 2 classroom. The guidelines used for mechanics, structure, grammar, and style have been taken from the Interim Guidelines for End of Key Stage 2 Expectations in England.
When I have used these in the classroom, I will place coloured pencils in yellow, green, pink, and blue on tables and have the children mark where specific requirements are missing or needing change on the papers of their peers.
I have included additional pages where the requirements are blank so that you can design them as a class or with focus groups.
I have also included the digital copy for editing or sharing on Google Classroom or Seesaw (ideal for paperless classrooms), available with download.
