Year Groups - Writing

A lot of students feel as though they are not "good writers" however the truth is, we all have the potential to write effectively, provided we are willing to practise frequently and learn from our mistakes.

One thing is certain, it takes time and effort to improve your writing.

Students need to focus on the sound and feel of every word, vary their sentences structure and make an impact on the reader through careful selection of key verbs and adjectives, and the use of powerful use of imagery.

It is important to know the form and structure of a narrative and a persuasive text.

It is important that you strive to orient, engage and affect the reader, and influence them through the precise and sustained choice of effective language and a cohesive structure.
