9En2 5 sentences Due Monday 29th June SRA

It’s been a while since we did some creative writing so we need to revise the techniques. To improve your story openings next lesson, you need to write 5 sentences to describe your setting that you can include when you re-draft.

Think about all of the effective ways you can describe a place. Could you use similes, metaphors, personification? Could you use more complex vocabulary? Could you look up words? Would using some images help you to describe in more detail? If so, find some and use them as a focus.

So, 5 brilliant descriptive sentences to describe your story settings.

9En1 – Reflection (for Mr Bakewell)

Reflect on your learning for this academic year. How have you moved forward? How much have you read? Have you learned from reading, listening to your teachers, listening to others or ‘doing’? You have GCSEs in two years’ time – do you feel prepared? Are you thinking about your musical/theatrical/sporting performances next year? In which subjects have you learned the most? Are you thinking about work experience? What has been the highlight of your year? Is Year 9 better or worse than Year 8?
Take half an hour to mindmap your thoughts and feelings in your small book.
