            understand exactly what you’ve got
            to do
Structure and Paragraphs:
 This could be make or break
 Imagine your work is a building
 Buildings need:
     Firm foundations
     Strong girders

 Without these things, they will
  COLLAPSE
Structures: Beginnings
 Examiner: set the scene and create interest, if
             you do this you will achieve most
             marks

 DO – ‘Have you ever wondered how many
             people use Campsall Park?’
 DON’T – ‘The subject I am going to write
           about is blah, blah, blah.’
Structures: Middles
 Middle section needs 3-5 paragraphs
 Develop ideas that you included on
  planning sheet
 Start a new paragraph when you start
  a new point
 In the question there may be prompts
  suggesting what you can include

                          reader needs to make

                          things
 End confidently
                         Fizzle out

 Make your ending       End with death and
 striking and give it     destruction or
 impact                   ‘then I woke up’
Paragraphs:
 New paragraph - each time you
 start a new topic in or when a new
 speaker says something.

 Vary your sentence length
Sentences:
 Simple sentences: subject object verb
 E.g. The boys walked down the road.
 Used to:
     keep things simple, especially for a young
      audience.
     make points clear in instructions, information
      or explanations.
     create drama, tension or a fast pace in
      descriptive or persuasive writing.
Sentences:
 Compound sentences: two simple
  sentences connected by and, but, so,
  because
 E.g. The boys walked down the road
  and their parents waved from the
  house.
 Advantage:
    they allow you to build more detail
    into your writing
Sentences:
 Complex sentences: main clause
 (simple sentence) and subordinate
 clause (doesn’t make sense on its
 own)

 The boys walked quickly down the
 road, feeling a little nervous because
 today was their first exam.
Connectives:
 Adding: and, also, as well as, too
 Sequencing: next, then, first second third,
                  finally, after
 Cause and effect: because, so, therefore

               except, if, as long as, yet

                instance
 Contrasting: whereas, instead of,
                  alternatively
Tone:

 Formal – if you don’t      Informal – if you know
  know your reader            your reader well and/or
