When creating and editing texts they demonstrate understanding of grammar, use a variety of more specialised vocabulary, accurate spelling and punctuation.

Summary of task
Students were asked to write a letter to their previous primary school about their experiences at high school. The letter is a narrative that tells their story of starting high school. The task was completed in class time and at home with teacher, peer and online support. Students were to focus on developing complex sentences and informative paragraphs in their writing.

A secondary focus of this activity has been the student’s ability to organise themselves to complete a task and to think critically about what they have written.
