Understand that cohesive links can be made in texts by omitting or replacing words


  • noting how a general word is often used for a more specific word already mentioned, for example ‘Look at those apples. Can I have one?' (Skills: Literacy)
  • recognising how cohesion can be developed through repeating key words or by using synonyms or antonyms (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • observing how relationships between concepts can be represented visually through similarity, contrast, juxtaposition, repetition, class-subclass diagrams, part-whole diagrams, cause-and-effect figures, visual continuities and discontinuities (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
