Easter Homework, Thursday 7th April:

They need to complete, analyse and improve three writing tasks which have been worked on in school.

You can download a writing criteria document which will help decide what needs to be worked on, to improve a piece of writing, below. We've used these lots of times in school and the children should understand them.
Please make sure that at least one piece of writing is handwritten (I'd go for the shortest piece myself).
The tasks are:

These don't need to be completed against the clock or under test conditions.
