To edit your work means you’re checking it makes sense and ensuring you have used the correct features and structure of the work.
To up-level your work means you are going to use high level vocabulary and see if you can improve on any punctuation or grammar (can you use subordinating conjunctions anywhere? What about expanded noun phrases).
In this unit of literacy, you are going to write a fact file on the famous writer William Shakespeare. You will notice similarities between this piece of work and the explanation text you wrote before half term.
