Y7: Telling a Story in English

Year 7 pupils have been having a wonderful time reading a short story by Michael Morpurgo to help them think about how they would write their own short stories, how it would read and to give them inspiration.

English — Y7 telling a storyPupils then had to plan, draft and tell their own short stories based on an early memory. Once their story was complete pupils had to tell their story to their partner sitting next to them and ask for constructive criticism on what worked well and what they could improve so pupils could use this when writing their final versions. This piece of working is going to be written up as a writing assessment and assessed using our Key Stage Three ARE.
