What makes a great story? We all have our favourite stories that we could read over and over. Equip your students with the tools to create their own stellar narrative stories too! Whether your students are retelling a fairytale or writing an action-packed adventure story, these success criteria will support them with following a narrative structure and developing their plot and characters.

Differentiated sets of success criteria with three levels of challenge
Display posters with WALTs and success criteria
Mini success criteria for students to stick into books

A 41-page Google Slides presentation with editable success criteria (+ pdf version)
A 3-page Google Doc with full list of differentiated success criteria (+ pdf version)
This resource can be used to assist with planning as it outlines text features of recount writing to be covered in lessons and provides progression options for learners of different abilities. It does not provide additional materials e.g. explanatory slides, exemplars or lesson plans for recount writing. Students would benefit from whole class/small group modelling of how to use success criteria before attempting to use the success criteria independently.
There are 3 levels of differentiation for some resources. The easiest level is suitable for Year 1/2 students (aged 5-6), the mid level is suitable for Year 2/3 (aged 6-7), and the high level is suitable for Year 3/4/5 (ages 7-9+).
