Always Improving!

Class 12 have been writing setting descriptions!  We have learned that that as good writers we need to be able to proof read and also edit and improve our work.  Miss Nicholson helps us practise this by writing up sentences from our work that have common errors, we then have to work together to spot the errors! She also copies example sentence that can be edited and improved and we have to use a thesaurus to ‘uplevel’ these sentences.

After this, we work in pairs to spot errors in our own writing. We also edit and improve our writing, with a particular focus on improving our use of vocabulary.  Today we focused on improving are use of fronted adverbials (remembering the comma!) and ‘uplevelling’ boring words like ‘got’ and ‘went’.

Working hard to improve our setting descriptions . Our first draft is never our best – we need to keep improving!
