Today’s lesson was brilliant – and from it everyone now has at least 4 pieces of detailed feedback exploring how a grammatical approach might improve the effectiveness of their piece. Look out for this work, as much of it is going to appear online soon!

(Tonight’s homework is to complete the re-write of two of your sentences from you existing pieces of dystopian descriptive writing – we’ll present some of these as part of the opening to the lesson tomorrow)
As part of the Grammar for writing programme, these presentations are being developed. This, first, presentation is an introduction to the subject of Prepositions. For further information check the site http://www.edutronic.net/
