'Achieving Our Best, In Thought, In Word, In Deed'

Get In Touch

Interactive Bar


In class today, we will be finishing our stories started yesterday.


When you have finished, please check your punctuation and edit your work (with a purple pen if you have one!)  Remember this means that you are looking to see if you can improve your writing in any way - this is almost always possible! 

For example:

  • Think about your vocabulary - can you improve any of the words you have used? Look for more interesting synonyms in a thesaurus (online or book). 
  • Could you start your sentences in different, more interesting ways, perhaps with an adverbial, for example 'Under the towering cliffs'?
  • Have you started EVERY sentence with a capital letter and also used capital letters for all your place names and names of people?
  • Have you used some extended noun phrases, using more than one adjective (describing word) to describe a noun and written commas between them?
  • Perhaps you would like to also illustrate your story!

Remember that editing and improving your work shows that you are becoming a thoughtful and mature writer smiley

I really look forward to reading your story when you return to school!
