    Would any one be able to provide me with an adult friendly, let alone child friendly explanation of this sub level on Ros Wilson so that I can ensure my HA chn are working towards this? I've got myself tongue tied on it!

    "can interweave implicit and explicit links between sections"
    Any help on this would be fantastic!
    Thank you in advance.

    I've always interpreted it as in a piece of writing the child makes links between different paragraphs, whether they are obvious to the reader or not so obvious - sorry I'm just changing the words. For example linking back to the introduction and other paragraphs in the conclusion. This is one of the issues with the big write criterion scale, it can be quite woolly and very open to interpretation on some of the points, just as APP is.

    I think it is taken from APP Level 5 AF3 and AF4 comments:
    development of material is effectively managed across text, e.g. closings refer back to openings
    overall direction of the text supported by clear links between paragraphs
    within paragraphs/sections, a range of devices support cohesion, e.g. secure use of pronouns, connectives, references back to text
    links between paragraphs/sections generally maintained across whole text
