We use an idea from Big Write (the puritanical version) - 'Super-Short-Term-Targets'! Basically, every Friday the teacher analyses the Big Write (an extended piece of writing) and identifies one small thing which is preventing the child moving forward. A target is then set WHICH CAN BE MET IN 5 DAYS e.g. 'Use 'which' 3 times to create complex sentences'. It's written on a stick and stuck on a card and is on the table in front of the child every I've they write. It's had far more impact than the termly targets we used before.
