To write a recount

In this lesson, we will look over our plans from the previous lesson and use them to inform our writing when writing a recount. We will look at a shared piece of writing, followed by a modelled piece of writing. Both methods will support us to write our own recounts.

To edit a recount

In this lesson, we will break an editing checklist into two parts: one that checks for punctuation, spelling and sense; and the other for language choices, sentence types and structure. After we have practised editing, we will be expected to edit recounts from the previous lesson.
