Today we planned and started to write stories based on Grendel. Miss P tried a new technique called ‘Slow writing’ which meant that we had to write line by line at the same time following instructions that Miss P gave us. For example, our first sentence had to stipulate the time of day, our second had to contain an expanded noun phrase.
We all agreed that our writing was a million times better than usual because we were having to really think carefully about every sentence.
Some of us were really keen to share our writing so far even though it’s not finished. Take a look and see what you think! We only slow wrote the first paragraph.
