    1. I have learnt a lot of different ways to start a story. This has broadened my knowledge about openings of a story.

    2. I think I have ‘performed’ alright but slightly better than usual.

    3. I feel I have worked quite hard in order to get a good grade.

    4. In my opinion, I think my favourite lesson was learning about the different ways to start a creative writing piece.

    5. I don’t think anything needs to be improved because I feel like I have learnt all the essential information I needed to know about creative writing. It also has helped my knowledge my understanding.

    1. I didn’t know how to write an opening paragraph, I now know what to include and to vary my vocabulary to make it more interesting.
    2. I think I performed okay, although I could have planned my story earlier to have a better understanding if what exactly I was writing about.
    3.i feel I have worked hard to understand about creative writing although I could have planned better.
    4.My favorite lesson was when we learnt how to write an opening paragraph of a story and when we went around different tables and had to write down the first sentence of each book set out.
    5.To improve i think the longer lessons should include something where the students arnt just doing written work but are learning from eachother and doing things, moving around to not bore them.

    1. I now know how to utilize certain types of openings to gain a stronger effect on the reader.
    2. I feel I performed fairly well in the controlled assessment.
    3. I think i worked quite hard during the course, hope it pays off.
    4.My favorite lesson was the one where we looked at the different story openings in books.
    5.The longer lessons could have some more communication with other students and knowledge sharing in case others were struggling. It`d cut down on boredom more and make them more enjoyable and in turn more memorable, making them more useful.

    1. I think my writing is already improve in this six weeks and I think now my writing is not very good but I think next year I will become good
    2. I think my controlled assessment is ok, because I have a lot of teachers and classmate to help me and the teachers always teach me some ideas and take about the poems, so I think my controlled assessment is good.
    3. In this assessment, I think I already work head, because I always go to the Internet to search something about the poems and sometime when I have some question I will go to ask some teacher, so I think my assessment will be good.
    4. I like this English lesson, because I can learn more English, then I can write down a good assessment.
    5. I think we can do more teamwork thing.

    1) I learnt that how to open my story with a great opener.
    2) im confident about the writing so I hope I did well
    3) very hard because they took away speaking and listening, this is my favourite part of English
    4) well we actually got to do the writing instead of just thinking about a plan.
    5) well maybe give a topic to write about that kids our age will love to write about.

    1. I have learnt different ways to start an opening paragraph and how to get straight into the action.
    2. I think I preformed well in the controlled assessment, I did a plan before hand as well. However I think I could have done better.
    3. I think I worked very hard during this course, I took criticism from my work and improved it, I also took on advice on how to make my work better.
    4. My favourite lesson was when we had to look at the first sentence of books and had to write them down.
    5. Longer lessons could have more communication instead of just sitting down. We could have also been put in mixed ability groups to get ideas from each other to help us improve. In the longer lessons we could have wrote opening sentences and had to read them out to the class so we could have group feedback.
