Teachit have a teaching pack to help with KS3 writing skills
This teaching pack includes materials to consolidate, apply and extend grammatical knowledge in reading and writing. Comprehensive teaching notes provide a valuable curriculum support for teachers, while a wide range of resources and activities ensures that students have opportunities to apply and extend their learning of the more challenging aspects of the curriculum. These will help prepare students for formal writing styles at KS3 and for essay writing at GCSE.
The grammar topics are organised into three sections (teach, practise, apply), and each topic includes the following:
definitions and explanations for teachers
student-friendly teaching resources
extended writing opportunities.
