The ability to use and understand a wide range of ambitious vocabulary. This will enable students to analyse how vocabulary contributes to the effectiveness and impact of a text and will enrich creative writing.

This includes emphasising facts, incorporating evidence, creating an emotional impact and using persuasive language through devices such as rhetorical questions.

Transactional & Non-Fictional Reading Skills
