    Hi all English Coordinators/ KS1 teachers,

    I am trying to find some clarification on the writing expectation in KS1.
    A DFE document released in July 2014 stated that KS1 SPAG would be made up of :
    Paper 1: 20 minute written task
    Paper 2: SPAG test
    Paper 3: Spelling test

    With new documentation released I can't find any word of the paper 1 -written task? Has this just been deleted? I can only find mention of 2 papers: Grammar and Spelling

    Can anyone clarify this for me?

    Thank you!

    Hi KG

    As far as i am aware the written "task" is now a teacher judgment based on a series of independent writes, across a range of genres that showcase that the child is at the expected level
