    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.

    Looks like gobbledygook to me. Links between sections are structural devices so that there is a coherent narrative or argument rather than unconnected paragraphs on the same subject.teacup secondary and we don't teach explicit and implicit links but perhaps markers such as 'secondly' and 'following on from this' are explicit in the sense that they direct the reader in an overt way. Implicit links might be suggesting it's getting darker rather than saying 'it was now evening'.

    I see what you mean. Yes, agree - gobbledygook! Thank you for your help.

    When I marked KS3 NCTs, this was level 4 writing in terms of cohesion and reference chains.
    To clarify, 'sections' mans that writing is organised logically, but not paragraphed. Amazingly, paragraphing accurately is a Level 6 skill!
    That's a different skill. The OP is asking (though it's unclear gobbledygook in the Ros Wilson definition, I agree) about linking paragraphs or sections.
    Google 'Level 5 writing exemplars' - they are online.
