The Punctuation Pyramid is a graphic representation for the range of punctuation that should be realistic for most children at each level of writing. It was created by Ros Wilson in conjunction with ‘Big Writing’, a new approach to teaching the skills of writing. VCOP (Vocabulary, Connectives, Op More…eners and Punctuation) is a key element of ‘Big Writing’ and further resources are available in the Resource Bank and through Each line represents a level and therefore use of a full stop only is Level 1 in punctuation, (not necessarily in writing overall) a full stop and a question mark are Level 2 and so on. For further details of Ros Wilson’s ‘BigWriting’ please visit

Great Resource. This is a lovely resource to help aid children's leveling or to use as part of a literacy display.
