How can we make this more succinct using conjunctions Fast writing (@RobertsNiomi) You have a paragraph of writing which is accurate in terms of

punctuation and grammar. The children copy the paragraph down and have to be 100pc accurate, otherwise when it is peer marked, each error will earn +1 point. The idea is that they increase accuracy and improve their score, so eventually they will end up with zero. I always link the paragraph to English learning, so it's relevant. It also improves tracking skills.
