3. Recognising traits in student writing
4. Assessing writing progression using the 6+1 traits together with the IB and ESF Scope and Sequence
5. Using pictures books, children’s literature and texts connected to UOI
6. Planning, resourcing, adapting and integrating the 6+1traits into a PYP setting
