As I listen or watch, I can identify and discuss the purpose, main ideas and supporting detail contained within the text, and use this information for different purposes.
At the end of Janaury the P5/6/7 class visited the village hall across the road.They had arranged to meet some older local residents to interview them for the project. The children used the Primary School Memory form, which they had helped to design. The children wrote down the information on the form and they also used blank sheets of paper to add information which was not in response to a specific question.
Back in the classroom the class sat in groups of 3-4 based on who they had interviewed. They had to write up their notes about the person. We went through the key ingredients for the first line and then they continued the write-up themselves, drafting it out first on paper and then using Microsoft word to type it up. Once checked by the teacher the children opened up the online form page and pasted in what they had written straight into the form.
